CSU-Pueblo announces Philip Vigil as new head football coach


The Wolf Pack has a new leader.

Colorado State University Pueblo announces Philip Vigil as their new head football coach on Friday.

Vigil comes to Pueblo from Western New Mexico University, where he served as head football coach for two seasons.

“We are excited to welcome Coach Vigil to the Pack,” President Timothy Mottet said. “Phil is a passionate educator who understands the work ethic, the families, and the long-term dreams of the students we serve at CSU-Pueblo. He is a proven winner, highly-organized, and an effective communicator, but most importantly, Phil has a vision for student athlete success that extends well beyond the football field. I am confident that his leadership and proven track record will build upon the excellence of our football program and that the Pack will continue to be strong students, community members, and contenders in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.”

Vigil has a coaching tree history from Division II football powerhouse programs and looks to keep that going with the ThunderWolves in the RMAC Conference.

The 2023 season for CSU-Pueblo starts with a home game against Midwestern State University on Sept. 2, 2023 at the ThunderBowl.
