Casey Kilpatrick said he learned from a man with decades of experience, but is also looking forward to trying things his own way. With the departure of Ken Harjes from the Moffat County High School boys golf team after 31 years at the helm of the program, Kilpatrick is the new head coach of the team after two years as an assistant. Kilpatrick said he'd known Harjes was planning to retire, and he had an interest in taking over the head coaching job. He was a clear choice, said Jeff Simon, Moffat County School District athletic director. “He was the assistant coach under Ken and he’s played golf for a long time,” Simon said. “I think the big thing is his vision for developing a program, not just coaching golf at the high school, but also developing a program which would get younger kids playing. His vision for that was huge for me.”
