McCormick resigns as RHS head football coach

May 1, 2013 - By Craig Blumenshine, Staff Writer

Jeremy McCormick, the reigning Wyoming high school football Class 3-A East conference coach of the year, has resigned as head football coach at Riverton High School.

The decision, announced today at an evening press conference, comes after a tumultuous off-season in which seven assistant football coaches either resigned or were asked by McCormick not to return to coach the Wolverines in the 2013-14 season.

Fremont County School District 25 superintendent Terry Snyder got involved in the RHS football issues after a District 25 board meeting April 23 when a standing room only crowd listened to seven individuals express their support for the seven assistant football coaches who were not returning next year.

Since that time, Snyder has met with McCormick, administrators and the coaches who were involved with last season's team.

After the school board meeting, Snyder said, "I want to get a clearer picture of all the issues from all the angles. This is an important decision."

As Riverton's head coach, McCormick's record was 18-27 overall and 1-4 in Class 3-A state playoff games.
