Fruita Monument boys basketball head coach Billy Dreher will not return to coach the Wildcats next season after his contract was not renewed.
Dreher has been the head coach at Fruita for the past five seasons, resulting in a 47-70 record over that span. Last season the Wildcat boys finished with a 10-14 overall record, going 3-5 in the Southwestern League for a fourth place finish. They then lost in the first round of the playoffs to Ralston Valley.
Fruita High School Athletic Director Denny Squibb said he was unable to comment on personnel issues but mentioned he would like to thank Dreher for his five years and it was best for the basketball program to move in a new direction.
