After 10 seasons in Montrose, Todd Casebier is returning to the Grand Valley.
Casebier is the new football coach at Fruita Monument High School, District 51 Athletic Director Paul Cain said in a release Tuesday.
Casebier compiled an 87-30 record at Montrose, won at least a portion of seven Southwestern Conference titles and coached in the Class 4A state championship game in 2013. This season, the Indians went 10-2 and won the Class 4A Foothills Conference. Casebier was selected the coach of the year in the conference and was the SWC’s top coach in 2013.
“I spent 10 years (in Montrose) and it was time to do something else,” Casebier said.
