CR revives football, adds women’s tennis


EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) – Last June, College of the Redwoods suspended its football program due to the COVID-19 pandemic and budget uncertainties.

After reexamining the situation, hopes of reviving football began to grow. Athletics Director Bob Brown said after months of planning, the institution decided to reinstate the program.

“We were all determined here in the department to do what we could to restore it because there is such a long history of our football program and a rich history of our football program,” Brown said.

Part of the lengthy process was dedicated to another sport as CR will welcome an entirely new program. Football will return in the fall of 2022, while women’s tennis will debut next spring.

“There was also some time that was needed to do some research with regards to the women’s sport that we were also going to be adding, not just to stay in compliance with Title IX,” Brown said.

Tennis will replace beach volleyball which was suspended along with football back in June.

“Women’s tennis is something that we have not done intercollegiately,” Brown said. “We have done almost all of them over the years at CR but from the research that was done, the MaxPreps numbers were good for the local regional areas.”

Research also showed that more colleges in the area compete in women’s tennis, making travel easier. Good numbers at local high schools were also a factor which helps in the continued effort to increase the amount of local student-athletes.

“It is an exciting time for us and despite the fact that the things we’ve had to be challenged with the pandemic,” Brown said. “I know we are ready to meet the challenge and I look for great things here in the very near future.”

Brown said the institution is already in the hiring process as CR searches for a new head coach for both programs.
