It won’t be official until the Vanlue Board of Education meets Monday but the Small School That’s Big on Learning has a new football coach.
Chris Yeater has been selected to lead the program for the 2010 season.
A 1993 Vanlue graduate, Yeater has served as an assistant high school coach and junior high coach over the past seven seasons.
He replaces Robin Cooper, who led the Wildcats to a 1-9 record last season. Cooper’s contract was not renewed by the Vanlue BOE last spring.
I talked to Chris and will have more on his hiring for Tuesday’s paper. I’ll post the story here on The Buzz Monday night.
Right now Vanlue has 19 high school players and 16 at the middle school level.
