Dan Cheatham, formerly an assistant at Snake River, will be Ten Sleep’s new head football coach this season.
Ten Sleep activities director Ernie Beckley confirmed Cheatham’s hiring via text to wyoming-football.com on Wednesday.
Cheatham takes over a program that has not fielded a team in three of the past four seasons. The Pioneers fielded a team in 2020 but did not have enough players to make a go of it in 2018, 2019 or 2021.
He was a science teacher at Snake River and was an assistant football coach with the Rattlers. He has also previously taught at Cloud Peak Middle School in Manderson. He could not be reached via telephone this week.
Cheatham takes over for Dane Weaver, who was Ten Sleep’s coach in 2020, going 1-7 in his only season.
Cheyenne South, Jackson, Rawlins, Burns, Cokeville, Glenrock, Pinedale, Big Piney, Lusk, Moorcroft, Wind River and Farson have also hired new head coaches for the upcoming season. If you know of other head coaching changes in the state, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
