Former Oklahoma State coach Bob Simmons hired as Boulder (Colo.) High School head coach
Former Oklahoma State coach Bob Simmons is back in the profession, taking the head job at Boulder High School in Colorado.
Simmons, who coached OSU to a 30-38 record from 1995-2000, had been out of the business since resigning from his position as the assistant head coach and special teams coordinator at Portland State before the 2010 season.
“I’ve always been interested in doing it at some point,” Simmons told the Denver Post. “As a college coach, you travel around and just over the last 10 or 11 years, high school football has come on the national scene. It’s on television every week. You’re watching kids. You’re watching coaches.
“I got a passion to get back in.”
Simmons, of course, has plenty of Boulder ties, serving as an assistant coach at Colorado from 1988-1994, including the Buffaloes’ national title season in 1990. He also had college coaching stints at Bowling Green (1976), Toledo (1977-79), West Virginia (1980-87), Notre Dame (2002-04) and Washington (2005-07).
