Jon Rakiecki has been hired as the Windsor boys basketball coach. He previously coached at Rocky Mountain and played in college at CSU.

Former Rocky Mountain High School coach Jon Rakiecki has been hired to lead the Windsor boys basketball team.

Rakiecki, 34, coached at Rocky Mountain from 2011-14. He played in college at CSU from 2002-05.

“The time away has been an awesome process for me,” Rakiecki said. “But I’ve been champing at the bit the last few years and am ready to go.”

Rakiecki hasn’t coached since leaving Rocky Mountain, but has been teaching social studies at Windsor and waiting for the right opportunity to get back into the game, so he jumped at the chance to coach with players he’s already familiar with.

The Lobos went 26-45 in his three seasons, making the Class 5A playoffs twice. He previously coached at Torrington (Wyoming), winning a state title in 2010. Torrington went 45-13 under Rakiecki.

Rakiecki replaces Dustin Duncan, who stepped down in April because of a “difference in philosophy.” Windsor went 167-63 under Duncan, making the 4A tournament each of his nine seasons, making three Great Eight appearances and finishing state runner-up in 2011.

The Wizards went 19-7 in 2015-16, making the 4A Great Eight. Windsor graduates six players.

“It’s an awesome tradition at Windsor and it’s exciting to be in a place where expectations are high,” Rakiecki said. “I’m ready to go.”
