Remove the interim from Matt Degitis’ head-coaching title.

He has landed the job and remains in command of the Mustangs boys soccer program.

“I’m thrilled,” Degitis said. “I was really hopefiul I would get it, really hoped for it since I moved back to Colorado and started working at Mullen.”

Degitis served as interim coach the past fall and led Mullen to the Class 4A championship. The Mustangs lost 1-0 to Northfield.

His new title became official this week.

Even when he coached in the Front Range League, Degitis said he imagined himself returning to Mullen, where he has also served as an assistant.

He is a graduate of the University of Colorado, also previously coached in Seattle and was at Mountain Range High School. Degitis teaches Theology and is Mullen’s retreat Director.

The Mullen  boys were 17-2-1 in the fall. Currently, the girls are 8-4.

Also the Mustangs interim girls soccer coach, a position that will open after the season, Degitis remains thrilled.

“It’s very exciting for me,” Degitis said.
