Rocky Mountain names Scott Criner head football coach

Meridian, IDAHO (KBOI-TV) - Rocky Mountain High School announced current Eagle offensive coordinator Scott Criner as new head football coach, replacing Jason Warr who resigned following the 2012 season.

Criner, a former Boise State player and assistant coach until 1996, has also worked at Sacramento State as offensive coordinator under then-head coach Steve Mooshagian, and was head coach at Timberline High School after leaving Boise State.

He will hold a staff position at Rocky Mountain and coach football, school activities director Troy Rice told KBOI-TV.

At Eagle, along with head coach Paul Peterson, Criner helped Mustang quarterbacks Taylor Kelly (Arizona State) and Tanner Mangum (BYU - Mission) earn division I college football scholarships.

Rocky Mountain finished the 2012 season 6-4, but lost its final four games of the season, including a 45-0 loss to Coeur D'Alene in the opening round of the state playoffs.
