The Auburn Riverside High School athletic department promoted Marcus Yzaguirre, the Ravens’ offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for the past five seasons, to head football coach, the school announced Friday.

Yzaguirre replaces Bryant Thomas who resigned in April after five seasons leading the Ravens.

Auburn Riverside finished the 2017 season as North Puget Sound League Olympic Division co-champions with an 8-2 record, falling to Camas in the district playoffs.

At Auburn Riverside, Yzaguirre has been a part of two league championship teams and was named the 2013 South Puget Sound League Assistant Coach of the Year.

“I am excited about the opportunity of becoming the head football coach at Auburn Riverside and look forward to continuing to build a program the school and community will be proud of,” Yzaguirre said. “I’m especially excited to continue working with a special group of kids I have had the pleasure of building great relationships with. I have learned just as much from them as they have from me”

Prior to coaching at Auburn Riverside, Yzaguirre spent six years coaching at Federal Way, where he was named the 2012 Tacoma News Tribune All-Area Offensive Coordinator of the Year.

“Marcus Yzaguirre is a quality individual who has been a big part of successful programs everywhere he has been,” said Doug Aubert, Auburn Riverside athletic director.

Yzaguirre teaches at Auburn Riverside and also has been the head track coach and assistant basketball coach.
