Glenrock High School announced on Wednesday that Ryan Collier will be the new head football coach of the Herders, quickly filling the vacancy left by Ray Kumpula's decision to retire after 18 seasons.
Collier served as co-offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach, running backs coach and defensive line coach under Kumpula for the past four seasons.
Glenrock activities director Julie Kuhlman said in an email statement released to the Star-Tribune that prior to arriving in Glenrock Collier served as head football coach in Otis, Colorado, for six seasons.
"Ryan will continue to bring a wide knowledge base of the game of football to our Herder program," the statement read, "as well as a mission to inspire, teach and motivate our students to be outstanding football players, but even better citizens."
In addition to his experience in football, Collier is also the head track and field coach for both boys and girls teams at Glenrock.
