Oak Harbor High School filled two coaching vacancies last month.
Athletic Director Jerrod Fleury announced the selection of Marcus Hughes to run the football program and Nate Sullivan to head the boys basketball team.
Hughes coached high school football in New York for seven years and in California for three. He worked at the junior-college level the past two seasons and served as the running backs coach at Fullerton College in 2018.
Hughes replaces Jay Turner, who stepped down in March after 11 seasons. Hughes inherits a team that was 7-3 last fall and finished in a tie for second place in the Wesco 3A North standings.
Sullivan comes to Oak Harbor after serving as an assistant coach in Anacortes for 11 years.
“I was thinking about becoming a head coach for a while, and this opportunity came up,” he said. “I get to stay close to home and keep my professional career.”
Sullivan works as a commercial crab fisherman.
He takes over for John Weston, who resigned this spring after five seasons. The Wildcats were 19-80 under Weston, including 6-14 in the 2018-19 season.
