Former Riverton boys basketball coach Stu Mullins has resigned as head of the Wolverines and accepted the head coaching position at Lander, he confirmed in a phone call to the Star-Tribune on Monday.

The Wolverines went 28-1 last season and won the program's first state championship.

Mullins cited family reasons for the change. He and his wife live in Lander and welcomed their second boy to the family in May. Mullins has lived in Lander since moving to Wyoming seven years ago.

"We've got two little kids now and my wife works in the Lander school district," he said. "So the opportunity was there and I took it."

Mullins also stated that he was happy with where the Riverton program is and he sees the returning talent on the team as a promising resumption for the next head coach.

He will take over a Lander program which has finished below .500 the last two years and missed the state tournament last season for the first time since 2010.
