By Ray Hamill — Eureka High announced on Sunday that football head coach Jason White is stepping down from the program after seven years in charge.
According to the school, White has decided it is time to give the opportunity to another person to lead the Loggers football team.
During his tenure, the longtime local football coach led the Loggers to three Big 5 championships, as well as a CIF NorCal Regional game.
His teams posted back-to-back prefect regular seasons in 2017 and 2018.
White, who has played or coached football for 35 consecutive seasons, says he will shift his focus to family and pursue an administrative credential.
He intends to stay at Eureka High School.
The school also announced on Sunday that current defensive coordinator Andrew Haraldson will now take over as the new head coach.
Haraldson graduated from Eureka High School in 2005, played at College of the Redwoods for two years and then continued his career at Willamette University.
Haraldson has coached with the program for the past eight years.
