Camas, WA — Legendary Camas Football Head Coach Jon Eagle announced today he’s leaving his post after an amazing 17 years.
Camas High announced the move in a press release early tonight revealing that Jack Hathaway, a Camas assistant coach for the past seven years, will assume the interim head coach job for the 2021 fall season, said Rory Oster, the CHS athletic director.
Eagle’s 17-year tenure saw the program turn into a major force.
Eagle, 61, leaves with a 127-22 record, leading his Papermakers to two 4A state titles — in 2016 and 2019 — and close second place in 2013. He led Camas to nine Greater St. Helens League titles.
Eagle has coached high school football in Washington for 29 years. Prior to Camas, he coached at Evergreen and Redmond. His career record is 229-70.
“It will be a loss we will feel deeply throughout our community here in Camas,” Oster said. “He is a future Washington State Coaches Association Hall of Famer, and a leader who meant so much to our kids, our school, and our entire community.”
Eagle will be an assistant coach for Portland State under head coach Bruce Barnum.
