MINOT, N.D. (KMOT) – Bishop Ryan Catholic School introduced Activities Director Roger Coleman’s successor Monday afternoon.

Cole Edwards, a graduate of Des Lacs-Burlington High School, is currently the director of basketball operations at Minot State University and assists both the men’s and women’s programs.

Coleman is making a career change to spend more time with his family, the release said.

Edwards will also assume Coleman’s role as the varsity girls basketball head coach.

“It’s an honor to be in a position to serve such a great community, group of athletes, and coaches who all hold high standards and expectations on the field and court, as well as in the community and classrooms,” said Edwards.

During the 2019-2020 season, Edwards assisted Brody Bosch at Our Redeemer’s.

The following year, Edwards followed Bosch to work at BRCS for one season as an assistant coach.

In 2021, Edwards moved to Seward, Kansas, to coach at Seward County Community College.

“I am eager to get started and look forward to helping push Bishop Ryan Athletics in a positive direction for years to come. I want to thank Bishop Ryan Catholic School for the opportunity, as well as Minot State University and Seward County Community College for allowing me to grow professionally over the last few years,” said Edwards.

Edwards will take over for Coleman at the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year.
