Bo Wasurick

Bo Wasurick has left the Jordan football program to coach the Anoka football team.

Jordan is in the market for a new head football coach.

Bo Wasurick, Jordan’s football coach since 2016, announced he is leaving his position.

In a Twitter post announcing his decision, Wasurick said, “As with all good things our time here in Jordan has come to an end. After a very tough year it is time for me to get back to taking care of my family. As a business, PhyEd. and Health teach for 15 years, I am excited to get back in the classroom and build relationships with all the students.”

Last week, Anoka announced Wasurick as its new head football coach.

“Bo did a good job promoting and creating excitement around our football and strength and conditioning programs,” Jordan Activities Director Joe Perkl said. “He had a lot of energy, and our student athletes fed off that. I wish him well in his new position.”

Wasurick came to Jordan three years ago after coaching high school football in Texas for the previous 10 years.

“Erin (Wasurick’s wife), the kids and I decided three years ago to head back to Minnesota,” Wasurick said in the Twitter post. “With a few different offers we set our sights on being the head football coach and activities director at Jordan ISD. What we saw in Jordan was a district and a community that was forward thinking and would be the perfect fit to grow as our family grew.”

While the last three years were filled with many challenges personally and professionally, Erin and I were 100 percent correct in the fact that we became part of a unique, welcoming and special community.”

In his three years at Jordan, Wasurick compiled a 24-11 record and went to the Class 3A state semifinals in 2017 and the state quarterfinals in 2018. In 2016, he guided the Hubmen to the section championship game.

“Working with the young people of Jordan has been an amazing experience,” Wasurick said. “I have learned so much from them and I hope they have taken a little from me as well.”
