Welcome Coach Welps!
River Road ISD formally introduced Bryan Welps on Wednesday as the school's new head football coach and athletic director.
Welps is no stranger to River Road, having coached the Wildcats from 2005 to 2010. In 2009, River Road went 9-4 and to the State-semis with Welps as their coach. He left to take the head coaching job at Brownfield before ultimately returning to Amarillo.
"I felt like six years ago we got a lot of things going here," Welps said Wednesday. "I felt like Coach [Phillip] Wiggins did a great job of getting things going and there's an excitement going on in the community and I think we're just going to keep that and keep going."
Coach Wiggins, who coached the Wildcats for four seasons before stepping down after the 2016 season, led River Road to a 7-5 record and a playoff win.
