Bryant Thomas has been named the head football coach at Kamiak High School.
The school’s athletic director, Sean Monica, announced the hiring Tuesday.
Thomas replaces Dan Mack, who stepped down in January after 20 seasons as the Knights’ head coach.
Thomas spent the past five seasons as the head football coach at Auburn Riverside High School, where he posted a 23-27 record and guided the Ravens to two league championships and three playoff appearances.
This past season, Auburn Riverside tied Kentwood for the North Puget Sound League 4A Olympic Division crown.
The Ravens (8-3) lost to Camas 40-0 in the opening round of the playoffs.
Prior to becoming the head coach at Auburn Riverside, Bryant spent six years as an assistant coach at Federal Way High School, where he served as offensive coordinator for five seasons and as defensive coordinator for one.
Thomas, who earned four letters in football at Washington State (1994-97), also has experience coaching at the college level. He served as a graduate assistant at WSU from 1998 to 2000, and as an assistant coach at Idaho State from 2001 to 2007.
He inherits a Kamiak team that was 1-8 last season, including 0-7 in Wesco 4A play.
