Former head coach Tim Baker has resigned from his position at the helm of the varsity team, as well as freshman success coach at Molalla High School.

Last season Molalla's football team went 2-7 overall, and 1-4 in Special District 1, what was formerly known as the Cowapa League. Molalla moved to its new home as part of a two year deal and hoped to revitalize the team's record, but things didn't plan out. After starting out 2-2, the team dropped five straight games, including a play-in game against North Marion.

Baker's two year stint with Molalla comes to an end with a cumulative 5-11 record, but it was not his only time as the head of Molalla's football program.

Baker previously coached the team from 2003 to 2006, collecting a league championship in that time and recording the second best winning percentage in school history (.500). Baker's 29 total career wins with the team match coaches Kaleb Mitchell and Mike Clarke with the most in school history, and his four postseason appearances are more than any other coach in school history.

Molalla High School athletics are searching for a plethora of coaches for the upcoming school year.

This is the latest in a group of coach's openings for the school's athletic programs. The girls' basketball team is searching for an assistant varsity and junior varsity coach, and an opening for a JV2 girls coach as well.The boys' team also has an opening for an assistant varsity coach.

Any interested candidates can get more information by contacting Molalla athletic director Todd Moore, or by applying at the Molalla River School District website,
