GFPS Currently Searching for Three Head Coaches

Posted: Updated:

'Tis the Season to search for new head coaches in the Great Falls Public Schools District as there are currently openings for three at Great Falls High and CMR. 

The most publicized one is at Great Falls High, where Matt Krahe stepped down as the head football coach on Monday. Krahe was in charge of the Bison program for six seasons after being an assistant there for 10 years. During his tenure as head coach, the Bison won 12 games. GFPS Athletic Director Gary DeGooyer said it was a mutual decision for Krahe to step down and he commended the job the now former head coach did in almost every aspect. However, DeGooyer says after six seasons, the results needed to be a little bit better. 

"Matt did a great job, he did everything right. Unfortunately, the wins and losses weren't there and I think it was just time and I think he agreed it was just time to give someone else a shot at the program. He had six years and I think as far as working with kids and the program he was very good at that, but to be honest, sometimes you need to have a little bit more success," DeGooyer told KFBB.

GFPS is also looking for a girls head soccer coach at Great Falls High after Lindsay Smith left to help run the Montana Rush, formally the Electric City Soccer Club. The boys job at C.M. Russell is also available because Joel Marinaccio isn't returning. If you'd like to apply for any of the positions head to and click on 'Current Openings'.

DeGooyer says if the football position was filled by early February, that would mean things moved pretty quickly. He also said football jobs are usually connected to a teaching position, so if they are to hire outside of the district, they won't know what teaching openings they will have until January.
