Centennial High wrestling coach resigns

May 30, 2014 

Collin Robertson resigned from his head coaching position at Centennial High after nine seasons on Friday to pursue an administrative position in another district, Centennial Athletic Director Jon Watson said.

Robertson helped build a Patriots program that has been nationally ranked in recent years, including back-to-back team championships at the 5A state tournament the past two seasons. Centennial had six individual state champions during the 2013-14 season. He also led them to a state title in 2007 and five consecutive 5A District Three championships.

"I hope the guys continue to grow even closer together and take this opportunity to lean on each other more and more," Robertson said.

Nine state placers, including three state champions, return for the 2014-15 school year.

Roberson said he will take over as the principal at Gooding Middle School this fall. He does not plan to pursue another coaching job at this time.

"I'm excited to be a part of a community where I can help make a difference in the lives of young people," Robertson said.
