Longtime football coach Dewey Allen has been named the head football coach at Joliet High School.

Allen, 67, replaces George Warburton, who spent six years with the J-Hawks before resigning to spend more time with family.

Allen's most recent coaching stop was from 2002-06, when he was the offensive coordinator at Billings Senior. He said he left Senior while battling a bout with cancer. Allen, who is known for guiding pass-heavy, fast-paced offenses, is ready to get started in Joliet.

"I am excited," said Allen, a sales manager at U.S. Bank Home Mortgage in Billings. "This will be fun, challenging and invigorating."

"We are pretty excited to have him aboard," said Joliet schools superintendent Jeff Bermes. 

In 1971-72, Allen began his coaching career as head coach at Colton High School in Colton, Wash. He was a graduate assistant at the University of Montana in 1973 and the head coach at Timberline High in Olympia, Wash., from 1974-75, followed by a three-year run as head coach at Polson High School. 

From 1989-90, Allen had his first of two stints as the Senior Broncs' offensive coordinator. He was also Billings Central's offensive coordinator from 1993-96, before taking the same position at Hardin from 1997-2000. He was offensive coordinator for the Billings indoor football team that played at Metra from 2000-01.
