Jenks has found Allan Trimble’s heir apparent. On Friday afternoon, Jenks football’s Twitter account announced that the school district had selected Keith Riggs as the new head football coach.


“Excited to announce that Asst. HC & DC Keith Riggs named (hashtag) JenksFootball Head Coach, pending board approval Monday…” the tweet said.


According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Jenks had completed an initial round of interviews this week. The source indicated that Jenks’ nine-person committee in naming Trimble’s successor brought in six candidates for interviews, including Keith Riggs (Jenks assistant), Loren Montgomery (Bixby head coach), Doug Greenwood (Jenks assistant), Tag Gross (Holland Hall head coach), David White (University of Nevada running backs coach) and Steve Huff (head coach at College Station High School in Texas and former Midwest City coach).


A tweet from White matched up with a potential interview, when he tweeted that he was in Oklahoma on Monday. Then on Wednesday he tweeted another photo from Tuttle while in the state making recruiting stops.


Riggs could not be reached Friday afternoon for comment.
