College of the Redwoods football hires Jason White as new head coach

EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) – After the recent reinstatement of the football program, College of the Redwoods continues to move forward by naming a new head coach. When football returns in 2022, Jason White will be at the helm.

White brings 27 years of teaching and coaching experience to the program. He stepped away from football after seven seasons as Eureka High School’s head coach. He will return to coaching at CR where he began his career.

In addition to coaching skills, recruiting ability played a large role in the hiring process. White’s connections to local high schools will help CR’s continued efforts to increase the number of local athletes.

In a press release from CR, White says the recruiting process is already underway. His goal is to create a program built with a foundation of local players.
