Prescott High Names Steve Moran New Football Coach

Prescott didn't have to look far to fill the sudden vacancy for a head football coach.

Steve Moran, who was helping former head coach Bob Young as an assistant, has been promoted to head coach.  The hiring closes, at least for now, the coaching carousel that began when Young accepted the Prescott job, then resigned a month later to return to his old job at Mingus.

Moran has plenty of head coaching experience, having led the Bradshaw Mountain program in the 80s and 90s.  In 19 years as a head coach Moran owns a record of 142-67-1.

Bob Young Leaves Prescott HS; Returns to Mingus High School as Head Football Coach

The Bob Young coaching carousel between Mingus and Prescott High Schools has returned to where it started.

Young, who resigned from Mingus earlier this year to take-over the Prescott program, has decided to return to his former job at his former school.  Young replaces Neil Dixon, Young's long-time assistant, who was named head coach after Young left for Prescott.

Young was named Mingus head coach in 1997, but left for two years while he coached at Westwood.  Mingus won the 4A state title in Young's first year in '97.

With practice beginning August 1st, Prescott is expected to name an assistant as interim coach for the 2011 season.
