Seattle Lutheran hires Jim Wright to coach football

Here is a press release that was sent out Friday. Seattle Lutheran hired Jim Wright to coach football:

Seattle Lutheran High School is excited to announce the hiring of Jim Wright as the head football coach at Seattle Lutheran High School.

Along with the head coaching duties, Wright will also coach running backs and handle play calling for the offense.

Last season Wright was the head freshman coach at Eastside Catholic. He was also the offensive coordinator for the Crusader JV Team as well as an assistant on the varsity level.

From 2005-07, he served as the President of the Eastside Crusaders Junior Football program, helping build the program from two teams and only 36 players to five teams and well over 100 players that participate in the Crusaders Junior program today. In 2007 Coach Wright stepped down as President of ECJF, stayed on to coach and continued to serve on the ECJF Board as the Executive Vice President until his opportunity with the high school.

A native of Los Angeles, Calif., Wright played running back and linebacker for eight years and has coached for over 15 years.

Wright and his wife, Marlie, have three children Codie, Kiyanna and six-month old Titan.
