Jeff Reifman will take over the Wolves’ next season, becoming the second coach in program history after the retirement of Larry Price.
Reifman took over his first head coaching job this season at Melba High, leading the Mustangs to a 12-10 record and the 2A state tournament. He also was an assistant from 2006-09 at Boise, winning a state title with the Braves in 2008.
Ridgevue hired him to take over its first-year program earlier this spring, but Reifman, a 2003 Centennial grad, lept at the opportunity at Timberline.
“Coach Price has already laid a foundation and built that program up to being one of the most powerful in the state,” Reifman, 30, said. “They have great administration, great facilities and great community and parent support.”
Price resigned after a 26-4 season at Timberline to follow his sons’ college careers. Between Boise and Timberline, Price went 601-173 and won 11 state titles.
