Olympic removes interim tag from football coachMay 16th, 2014 by nathan joyce
Sal Quitevis, who took over the Olympic football program on an
interim basis last summer, has been given the job officially.
Olympic athletic director Nate Andrews removed the interim tag on Friday. Quitevis led the Trojans to a 5-5 record and into the Class 2A West Central District tournament, where they lost to Lindbergh 20-0.
Andrews said this in an email:
“Sal agreed to step up at a time when we were in a real bind regarding our head football coach position and he has done a remarkable job considering the complexity of the position. Knowing the position was only guaranteed for one year, and stepping in with little experience, he selflessly committed his time and energy to lead both his coaching staff and his players during the 2013 season and this off-season. As an alumni of OHS and someone that truly believes OHS Football can be a perennial power, we felt Sal was the right person to lead that effort.”
Quitevis took over for Brad Hamblet, the former Klahowya football coach, who took over one season as Tim Allbee was having healthy problems.
