Hartwig to take over Trojan football

West High names replacement for coach Brian Sauser

North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– The Trojans have a new leader.
West High Athletic Director Scott Kibby announced Friday, June 6, that Garrett Hartwig has been appointed head football coach. Hartwig takes over for Brian Sauser, who resigned last month after six years of leading the Trojans on the gridiron. Sauser was the dean of students at West High, but budget cuts eliminated that position. He has since taken an offensive coordinator and assistant athletic director position with Yukon High School in Oklahoma.
