Monroe hires Brett Jay as football coach

Monroe has hired Brett Jay as its next football coach. Jay comes to Monroe after six years at the helm at River View High School in Kennewick, Wash. Jay will also teach English at Monroe.

Jay guided River View to the postseason in each of the past two seasons.

“His enthusiasm, what he’s done to build a program at the previous school,” said Monroe athletic director Joe Delp listed as to what stood out about Jay. “His enthusiasm and organization, his willingness to want to make this work.”

Jay met with the team and community last Friday, in which about 65 athletes showed up and twice that many parents. He will be conducting interviews for assistant coaches during spring break and will be back for spring ball around the start of June.

Richard Abrams, who was also a school psychologist, retired from the position at the end of January.
