Wausau-East Hires New Football Coach


WAUSAU, WI (WSAU)  There will be a familiar name stalking the sidelines this fall as the new Wausau East football coach. Tom Tourtillout is returning to Central Wisconsin.

Tourtillot had a successful run as head coach at  Merrill before leaving for Rice Lake in 2012. He also coached for 7 years in South Milwaukee. 

 From Athletic Director Greg Harvey:

 “We could not be more excited with the addition of Tom to our teaching and coaching staff. He is coming into our program with a plan of attack that includes the teaching of solid core values within an education-based athletic program. On top of that, he is a master football technician and highly skilled communicator. Tom has a proven track record of success as a teacher and as a football coach. Our student-athletes and our entire Lumberjack football family are very eager to get going under Tom’s leadership.”

 The East community is excited to get a coach like Tourtillott to take over a program that hasnt had much stability the last few years
