With its inaugural football season scheduled to get under way in the fall, Anzar High School officially opened the hiring process last week for one head coach and two assistant coaches, with all three positions to be filled as soon as possible.

Superintendent Willard McCabe confirmed as much on Monday, adding that the head coach of the Anzar football team will be paid a stipend of $1,850, while each assistant coach will receive $1,000.
“We’d like to fill it as soon as possible because we’d like the [coaching staff] to run the planning and the initial formation of the program,” McCabe said. “All the equipment and supplies would reflect their vision and leadership of the program.”
McCabe said fliers have been sent out to incoming high school students and non-seniors about next fall’s football program.
No schedule has been announced for the fall season yet, but McCabe said all of Anzar’s home games will be played on Friday nights — under the lights. Although the San Juan Bautista high school is without light standards, McCabe said in February that local farmers have donated light standards to illuminate the field.
Meanwhile, the Hawks are set to compete in the West Bay Athletic League, which is expected to include a total of five teams, one being Gilroy’s Anchorpoint Christian. Anzar and its respective WBAL member schools will play eight-man football, which is generally played at smaller high schools.
It was also announced in February that the Hawks will play on Barragan Field, named after the late Raymond C. Barragan, who helped fund the baseball field at Anzar and who also purchased uniforms for the team.
McCabe said organizational meetings and further details regarding the football program will be discussed once a coaching staff is on board.
“We’re just excited about the prospects of a team,” he said.
