“In uncertain times, a familiar face will be on the sidelines for Rincon University Football this fall. The Rangers are excited to announce Khyree Copeland as their new Head Coach taking over for Mike Strack,” Rincon/UHS athletic director Dave Le Peau said. “While Strack is returning to Kansas where his family laid roots, Copeland has served as an assistant coach for the Rangers over the last two seasons. This one-time Northern Athletic Conference Player of the Year has spent the last decade coaching both high school and college in preparation for this role.
“A well-respected member of the Rincon staff, the RUHS administrative team is confident that Coach Copeland is the right person to continue moving the Ranger program in the right direction.”
Le Peau also announced the hiring of Stacia Reeves to take over the program’s girls swim team.
Sabino announced the hiring of Luis Ortega to lead the school’s Spirit Line. Ortega was an assistant coach at Amphitheater High School last year and he led the Tucson Sugar Skulls.
