The interim tag is removed and Jack Hathaway is Camas High School’s new head football coach.
Athletic Director Rory Oster made the announcement on social media Wednesday saying, “So proud of the job Coach Hathaway did this season leading Papermaker football, and even more excited about our conversation (Wednesday) morning and his acceptance of continuing to lead Camas HS football. Thank you for choosing us, Papermaker Head Football Coach Jack Hathaway.”
Hathaway stepped into the interim coaching role at Camas in June following the departure of longtime head coach Jon Eagle, who accepted an assistant coaching role at Portland State. He had been on Eagle’s staff as an offensive assistant and special teams coordinator for seven seasons. He also was Heritage’s head coach from 2011-’13.
This fall under Hathaway, Camas went 7-5 overall, won the 4A Greater St. Helens League title and advanced to the state quarterfinals. Camas’ season ended last Saturday in a 35-14 state quarterfinal loss to Kamiakin.
Hathaway teaches physical education at Camas.
