CRAIG — Moffat County High School head football coach Keith Gille announced this week he will resign from his position.

Gille handed in his resignation Friday to MCHS Athletic Director Rich Houghton and announced the news to athletes Monday morning.

Gille, who has coached high school teams for more than three decades, began as Craig’s head coach in 2014, compiling a 20-16 record across four seasons. The Bulldogs were 15-5 in 2A Western Slope League play during his tenure and twice qualified for the postseason, in both instances, as the conference champions.

“Nobody can ever take those away from them, the first since 1993,” Gille said in a message to the Craig Press. “I apologize that we could not bring the first state title to this great town.”

Gille thanked the community members, fellow coaches and students who have participated in and supported the football program.

He noted that while he will step down from his coaching position and will not be part of the coaching staff for the upcoming baseball season he will continue to teach English at the school. Neither Gille nor MCHS administration have set forth any plans for filling the head coach job.

The Craig Press will feature more details as this story develops.
