Perryton promotes Cole Underwood to head football coach and Athletic Director

You may have heard this has been one of the busiest coaching carousels in Texas Panhandle history. It just keeps getting crazier, but now we’ve started to see some spots get filled.

For Perryton, the biggest move was also its easiest.

Cole Underwood, who had served as the offensive coordinator for the Rangers’ football team, has been promoted to head football coach and athletic director. He replaces Kurt Haberthur, who departed to take the same position with Gruver.

“First of all I just want to say thank you to everyone who reached out to me today to wish me well on this new adventure as the AD/HC at PHS,” Underwood said via a statement posted to his Twitter account. “I couldn’t be more excited. Rangers, Rettes and coaches – I can promise you no one will fight harder for you or your success than me.”
