Shorecrest football coach resigns (UPDATED)

Shorecrest football coach Mike Wollan has resigned after going 40-52 in nine seasons.

“It’s just time for me to do something different,” said the recently-married Edmonds resident, who works for a manufacturing company in Mill Creek. “And, quite frankly, it’s just tough to keep a pulse on the kids during the day when you’re not in the building. Plus, getting up at 5 a.m. and getting home at 8 p.m. made for long days each season.”

Wollan, 45, entered the program as a volunteer assistant 15 years ago before serving as an offensive coordinator the next five seasons. He inherited a 0-9 team in 2001 and yet won his first three games.

His best season came in 2005 when Shorecrest (with Eastern Washington’s Jesse Hoffman) won a league championship in the hybrid Wesco South despite being a 3A team. This year, Shorecrest went 3-7 overall and 1-3 in Wesco 3A.

Wollan said that ninth-year defensive coordinator Brandon Christensen will likely be the successor, once the official hiring process in the Shoreline School District is finalized.
