HASTINGS, Neb. -- Wrestlers at Hastings Senior High School have a new coach after the previous one was let go from his position.
School officials confirmed that Brian Laux took over coaching duties on Sunday, replacing Austin Weidner who took the position ahead of the 2015-16 season.
The nature of Weidner's firing was not released.
Officials said Laux will finish out the current season as head coach, and then they'll decide if he'll stay on permanently or if they'll begin the search for a new coach.
Laux was head coach prior to Weidner taking over in 2015.
