Canyon View High School announced it has hired Nick Gehrts as its new varisty football coach, replacing interim coach Scott Harris. Gehrts is excited to help start a new program and has big expectations for the upcoming season. 

“Our first goal is to win the region. If we can win the region everything else can go from there,’ Gehrts said. “It’s a really good opportunity and lots of opportunity for growth and then it’s a new school. It's intriguing to build a new tradition and culture.”

Gehrts was previously the head coach at nearby Westview High School and coached at Tonopah Valley as well. He is a two-time regional coach of the year and has been around the game for a long time.

“I’ve been around high school football since I was around 8 years old because my dad was a coach, but I’ve been coaching for 10 years,” Gehrts said

Coach Gehrts is a family man who enjoys golf and the desert. He has two kids ages 9 and 6 which keep him busy.
