Brian Killion has resigned as the wrestling coach at Fossil Ridge High School.

Two Fossil Ridge High School coaches have resigned.

Brian Killion is leaving the wrestling team and Judy Schultz is leaving the boys tennis team.

Killion is the only wrestling coach Fossil Ridge has had, starting when the school opened in 2004.

Killion said it was best for the kids to part ways with the school. Fossil Ridge was Class 4A when the program started and finished fifth in 5A at state in 2013.

“Starting a program was awesome,” Killion said. “I had so much fun watching the boys grow into great young men.”

Schultz, who’s son Kevin is a senior at Fossil Ridge, cited personal reasons for stepping down after three seasons in charge.

“I love the kids. I loved what they brought to it,” Schultz said. “It was great working with my son.”

The SaberCats had a doubles team finish second at state in 2014, the best finish ever for a Fossil Ridge boys tennis team. There were also two third-place finishers for Fossil Ridge.

“They put the time in with the kids and it was about building relationships and giving them life-long skills,” Fossil Ridge athletic director Ken Denning said. “I appreciate them giving their time to the program and they’ve done a great job with the program. Both of them will be dearly missed.”

Denning said the job openings will be posted on the Poudre School District website at psdschools.org/employment.
