GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- After a long tenure at Colorado Mesa, Joe Ramunno is returning to the sidelines for the Bulldogs at Palisade.

Ramunno's return to the Maroon and Silver is welcomed by the Palisade community with more than open arms and a smile. During his nine years as the head coach for the Bulldogs in the 90's, Ramunno won four consecutive Colorado state championships.

Rather than his overwhelming success, however, Ramunno's former players concur that his greatest achievement as a coach is the importance he places on the relationships he builds with his players.

Ramunno's exact title on the staff has not been determined yet. He will be a full-time staff member, but he will not overtake John Arledge at the head coaching position.
