Fruita Monument has named longtime assistant Cameron Ross its new football coach, Wildcats athletic director Denny Squibb announced on Monday.

Ross, a 1999 graduate of the school, has been an assistant with the Wildcats since 2006, spanning three head coaches.

"His strong desire, work ethic, and his relationships with the athletes have Fruita Monument excited to have him as their next head football coach," Squibb said in a statement.

He played college football at Colorado Mesa from 1999-2003 for Joe Ramunno, now the coach at Palisade High School. At Fruita Monument, Ross has worked under Billy Moore (2006-10), Sean Mulvey (2011-14), and Todd Casebier (2015-17).

Ross has coached both the offensive and defensive lines at Fruita Monument, and served as the offensive coordinator and head JV coach most recently. He also has experience as an assistant football coach and head track coach at Plateau Valley.

Casebier was named the football coach at Castle View earlier this month.
