Faulkner resigns as Rigby FB coach

By Michael Lycklama

Rigby High School football coach Casey Faulkner resigned from his position last week.

Faulkner's Trojans have posted a 4-29 and missed the playoffs in all four seasons during his tenure at the school.

Faulkner took his first head coaching job at Rigby at the start of the 2009 season. He previously served as a student assistant at Idaho State and the offensive coordinator at a pair of Ari-zona high schools.

Rigby athletic director Ted Anderson said the school is advertising the open coaching position nationwide and is looking for someone to turn around a program that hasn't posted a winning season since 1999.

"We want to find somebody that preferably has some head coaching experience, particularly in a larger school," Anderson said. "We'll see what we get. We have been struggling, so it has to be somebody to come in and pick up the pieces. I think Coach Faulkner and his staff have done the groundwork, so whoever came is not coming in with the cupboards completely bare."
