Seth Womack, a former head football coach and athletic director at Eagle Point, is taking over Redmond High’s football program.
The Redmond School District announced Womack’s hiring as football coach July 18, a few weeks after the resignation of Brent Wasche, who went 2-7 in his lone year as Panthers coach before taking a job as a physical education teacher in Port Angeles, Washington. Womack will also serve as dean of student success at Redmond, replacing former Panthers baseball coach Doug Taylor, who recently moved to being assistant principal at the school.
“I am thrilled to lead the Redmond Panther football program,” Womack said in a district news release. “It is an honor to be working in this district with the coaches, parents and athletes. I am looking forward to the work ahead and to continue building on the strong tradition of football success at Redmond High School.”
Womack, 40, has 15 years in coaching high school and college football, according to the district.
“Seth brings successful head coaching experience, a deep heart for student athletes, a strong knowledge base and unmatched enthusiasm for the task ahead,” Kevin Bryant, the district’s athletic director, said in a statement. “Seth wowed the committee during the interview process, and I know he will do the same with athletes, parents and coaches in the Redmond Panther football program.”
According to the Mail Tribune of Medford, Womack led Eagle Point High to a 23-33 record in six seasons, coaching the Eagles in a tough conference. He resigned as coach in April 2019, citing a desire to spend more time with his family, but planned to stay on as the school’s athletic director.
Eagle Point went 6-3 in the 2018 season, narrowly missing the playoffs with a 2-3 record in Class 5A Special District 2. The Mail tribune reported Womack’s strongest season came in 2016, when he coached Eagle Point to a 7-3 record and its first playoff appearance since 1997.
Womack previously served as an assistant coach and recruiter at his alma mater, Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, the paper reported. He also played professionally in the National Indoor Football League and in Austria. He also has coached with Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts, Rock Bridge High in Columbia, Missouri, Oklahoma Panhandle State University and the Braunschweig Lions for a season in Germany.
Womack will be the fourth head football coach in four seasons for Redmond.
