For the Reporter

After five years as head football coach at Auburn Riverside High School, Bryant Thomas is stepping down. The search for a new coach begins immediately.

Thomas completes his tenure as the winningest football coach in Auburn Riverside history. During the 2017 season, the Ravens finished in a tie for the North Puget Sound League Olympic Division championship with a record of 8-2.

Highlights of Thomas’ five years as head coach include three playoff appearances and two league championships. During his tenure, Thomas worked with a number of players who have gone on to play football at the collegiate level.

“In his years as head coach Bryant has worked very hard to bring success to Auburn Riverside Football,” said Doug Aubert, Auburn Riverside director of athletics. “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 Bryant for his passion and service with Auburn Riverside football.”

Application information about the head football coaching position is available on the Auburn website, auburn.wednet.edu/hr.
