Alamosa has hired Drew Sandlin to be its next football coach, according to Erik Melgoza, the school's athletic director.

Sandlin comes to the Mean Moose from Rock Canyon, where he was an assistant football and baseball coach.

"I believe that Drew is a great fit for Alamosa, he has ties to the Valley and has been here in the pas; he understands the culture," Melgoza said. "He did his homework as to the tradition of Alamosa football and is very aware of the recent struggles. Drew is a young coach full of enthusiasm who has worked under outstanding head coaches."

Alamosa has won either four or five games each of the past four seasons, including a 4-5 mark in 2018.

Sandlin, a graduate of Rock Canyon, played college football at Fort Lewis, and later walked on to the CSU football team under Jim McElwain.

Sandlin started his coaching career at Rock Canyon as a JV football and baseball assistant in 2016. He then became a varsity football assistant in 2017.
