In nine seasons as a college head coach, Tormey compiled a 49-54 record. He spent last season as the defensive coordinator at the University of Wyoming.
South Whidbey principal John Patton announced the hiring.
"We are really excited," Patton said.
Tormey, who inherits a South Whidbey team that was 5-5 last season, takes over for Mark Hodson and Andy Davis, who split head coaching duties for the Falcons last season.
