According to a statement from Laramie High School AD Ron Wagner, Darling and his family will be leaving Laramie.

Darling was hired last May after spending four seasons with the boys’ basketball program at LHS as an assistant coach.

In a statement provided to the media on Wednesday, Laramie High School Athletic Director Ron Wagner said the following:

"I would like to announce the resignation of Nick Darling, LHS Head Girls Basketball Coach, effective upon ACSD #1 Board acceptance. Coach Darling and his family had a professional opportunity that they could not pass up as a family and it will take them out of the state. LHS will certainly miss Coach Darling and appreciate all he did for the girls' basketball program in the short time he was the head coach. We wish nothing but the best for Coach Darling and his family and appreciate all he has done for our community."

The search for a new coach will begin soon.

Laramie joins Evanston as 4A programs looking for a new head coach. Jeremy Fessler stepped away from the Red Devils girls’ basketball program last month after six seasons.

Pictures From Wyoming Snowpocalypse 2021

After two days and 30-odd inches of sow, southeast Wyoming was left buried. An in the grand tradition of every generation since the invention of the camera, we took pictures of the snow.

The Blizzard of March 2021 covered up our driveways, fences, and in some cases porches. It trapped up in our homes and canceled our plans.

Here's a quick look around the Cheyenne area from Sunday (March 14) and Monday (March 15).
