Great Falls didn’t have to look very long for a new football coach, because they didn’t have to look very far.
Scotty Steen, who has been an assistant coach at Great Falls for 19 years, was named the head football coach on Wednesday. He replaces John Barrett, who resigned last month after a year on the job for personal and family reasons.
“This still feels like a dream,” Steen said. “It’s something I’ve been thinking about, praying about and talking to my family about for a while.”
