It’s official: Hogan takes over as Stanton football coach, AD

STANTON - Throw out the interim stuff - Cody Hogan is now the the athletic director/head football coach for the Buffaloes.

Hogan took over the AD/head football coaching role on an interim basis when Jerry Burkhart left the district after eight weeks into the season.

The Buffaloes finished the season 1-9, missing the Class AAA playoffs in 2018.

In a statement released by Stanton Superintendent Dr. Merl Brandon, the school district’s board took the interim status away and noted, "Mr. Hogan has done an exceptional job assuming the interim athletic director duties over the last several weeks and we are excited to have him officially assume that position.”
