Auburn Riverside football coach Bob Morgan steps down

Auburn Riverside football coach Bob Morgan has stepped down as head of the school’s football program.

According to Auburn Riverside Athletic Director Doug Aubert, the search is on for a new head football coach.

Morgan coached for 12 years at Auburn Riverside, six of them as the head coach.

During that time Morgan compiled a 21-34 record, with two playoff appearances. This past season, the Ravens finished tied for last place in the South Puget Sound League North 4A with a 1-9 record.

Among the highlights of Morgan’s era was the Ravens’ 30-23 win over district rival Auburn in 2011, the first ever for Auburn Riverside football against the Trojans

He also coached two future National Football League players, Max Komar and David Paulson, during his time with the Ravens.

“I am sure that I will miss coaching football, but after much thought, the challenges in this situation outweigh the positives for me,” Morgan said. “The biggest positive was our players, they are great kids. I loved coaching these kids and I hope them the best of success in the future. With that said, I will enjoy having more time to spend with my family.”

Morgan will still teach algebra at the school.

“In his years as head coach Bob has worked very hard to bring success to Auburn Riverside football,” Aubert said. “He finishes his tenure having had a great influence on our athletes and having been a valuable piece of our athletic program. Our thanks to Bob for his passion and service with ARHS football.”
