MONTPELIER — After nine seasons as head football coach at Montpelier, Steven Brancheau stepped down Monday, according to a press release from the Montpelier athletic department.

Brancheau was 28-62 over nine seasons as Locos' head coach and his resignation was effective Monday.

"The Montpelier School Distirct and Athletic Department would like to thank Coach Brancheau for all his hard work and dedication towards our student-athletes and football program over the last nine years," said Montpelier athletic director Joe Brigle in a press release. "He put in a great deal of time of time and effort and his services should be commended.
