Squalicum High School will have a new football coach next season. According to the Bellingham Herald, Reed Richardson’s year-to-year contract will not be renewed for 2014. The decision, which was made January 22nd was confirmed by Squalicum Athletic Director Patrick Brown.

Brown declined comment on when Squalicum will hire a new coach.

Richardson went 39-and-43 in eight seasons at Squalicum. The Storm made the district playoffs four times during his tenure. Squalicum went 4-and-6 last season.


According to the Herald report, Richardson will stay on as a teacher and he plans to take some time off before getting back to football.

A Facebook page entitled “Keep Ritchie as Our Football Coach” has been created. The Herald story also mentions the possibility of a student petition to bring Richardson back.
