Dave Largent, an assistant coach with the Kaycee football team last year, will be the Buckaroos’ new head football coach in 2019.
Kaycee activities director Jason Humble confirmed Largent’s hiring in an email to wyoming-football.com on Friday.
Largent is a rancher who lives near Kaycee. He replaces Tony Rouse, who was Kaycee’s coach for two seasons and led the Buckaroos to their third consecutive Class 1A six-man championship and a 10-0 season in 2017.
Kaycee went 5-4 last season and lost in the first round of the 1A six-man playoffs.
Other Wyoming high schools with new head coaches for 2019 include Kelly Walsh, Gillette, Rock Springs, Evanston, Torrington, Glenrock, Lovell, Big Piney, Pinedale, Meeteetse and Ten Sleep. Schools looking for new head coaches include Wyoming Indian, Midwest and NSI. If you know of other head coaching changes statewide, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
