Legacy has tapped Corey Heinz, who has experience in the college ranks, to be the school's next football coach.

Athletic director Brendon Feddema announced the hire via email on Monday.

"Heinz brings a great deal of knowledge and excitement to the Legacy football program," Feddema said. "His collegiate experience will be invaluable to the players and the coaches as Legacy looks to strengthen its foundation and become one of the top football programs in the state. Additionally, his college connections will be helpful for those players wanting to play at the collegiate level.

"We look forward to Corey beginning his tenure at Legacy," Feddema added.

Heinz most recently was the offensive coordinator at Missouri Southern State University, a Division II program. He also spent the spring of 2017 on staff at Augustana University.

Prior to that, Heinz was an assistant at Highlands Ranch High School, serving as offensive coordinator. He also was on staff at Tulsa University for three seasons.

Heinz will take over for Wayne Voorhees, who was hired to start the program at Riverdale Ridge in Brighton in February. Voorhees had been the coach since 2003, going 96-64.

Legacy went 6-4 last season in Class 5A.
