BUHLER — Buhler's boys basketball team has a new head coach as the school announced on Tuesday that former Hutchinson Junior College head coach Ryan Swanson will be taking over the program, replacing Denny Wahlgren.
Wahlgren had been at Buhler for five years, but recently resigned due to health reasons.
This will be Swanson's first high school coaching job. He coached the Hutchinson Blue Dragons from 2000 to 2006 and he's expected to inherit a good team, led by Jace Williams and Noah Webster.
Swanson also played at Hutchinson Juco and was a redshirt guard for the Blue Dragons' 1988 national championship team.
