When the high school football season kicks off this fall, Waterloo East will have a new head coach. School officials have decided to fill the vacancy by promoting an assistant to take charge of the program.

Richard Carter has been picked to replace former coach Kevin Meyer, who resigned earlier this year. Carter’s hiring is pending Waterloo Board of Education approval, which is expected at the regular meeting on Monday (May 12, 2014).

Carter has served as the Trojans’ sophomore coach the past four years, while simultaneously working as an assistant for the varsity team. He’s currently head coach of the girls track program at East.

During his playing days, Carter was an accomplished running back at UNI from 2000-2004. He rushed for 2,906 career yards — the sixth-best total in school history.

At East, Carter is looking to improve a football team that finished 0-9 in 2013. He’s the second head coach hired by the school in the span of 14 months.

Meyer, the former coach, was hired by East in March 2013. He resigned in January after guiding the Trojans for one season. Meyer, who moved to Iowa from Missouri, has accepted a job in another state and plans to move this summer.
