By Ray Hamill — College of the Redwoods will begin accepting applications for the open football and women’s tennis head coaching positions on Monday.

Interested applicants have until March 22 to apply for either position, both of which opened up after the school announced earlier this week that it is adding the two sports.

The listings will appear at, while interested applicants can also contact CR Athletics Director Bob Brown directly at or by phone at (707) 476-4239.

The CR football team, which had been suspended for budgetary reasons just last summer, will begin play again in the fall of 2022.

Women’s tennis will begin play this coming fall, with an annual regular season in the spring.

There will be an added emphasis on local recruiting for the new football coach, which was one of the conditions for bringing the program back, with a goal of adding 20-35 local freshmen each season.

Interviews will be held in late March, with each position expected to be filled by early April.
