Lincoln hires a football coach

I just heard from Lincoln athletic director Char Davenport that Mike Merrill will be the Abes football coach in the fall.

Merrill has a lengthy resume, with head coaching stints at Mount Rainer (three seasons), Lake Washington (one season), Auburn Riverside (five seasons). Recently, Merrill has been an assistant coach and teacher at Clover Park. He also has been an assistant at South Kitsap.

In 2006, Merrill led Lake Washington to the round-of-32 postseason. When he was at Mount Rainier, he took the Rames to the playoffs in 2003, 2004 and 2005. He has twice been named a league’s coach of the year. First in 1997 when he was the SPSL Coach of the Year when he was at Auburn Riverside and again in 2003 when he was the Seamount Coach of the Year.

Davenport said Merrill will teach at Lincoln.
