Former Evergreen Assistant Matt Martin Hired As Ridgefield’s New Head Football Coach

Less than a week after Heritage hired Jack Hathaway to take over the Timberwolves football program, fellow former Evergreen assistant coach Matt Martin was hired as Ridgefield’s new head football coach.

Martin, who served as the Spudders Defensive Coordinator from 2002-2005 knows the Ridgefield program quite well.

“I’m excited to be here!,” he said. “After Ridgefield won state in 1995 the program had fallen on hard times. I helped build this foundation, and it means a lot to be back. We won 30 games in 4 years at Ridgefield. We can do it again.”

Martin takes over for Kitt Rawlings who coached for just 2 seasons in Ridgefield before taking a job in his home state of Utah. Rawlings’ Spudders went 7-2 last year in the school’s first year back in the 1A TriCo since Martin’s final year in 2005. From 2006-2009 while in the 2A Greater St. Helens League the Spudders went just 10-27 and 4-17 in league play, including a 1-8 season in 2009, Rawlings first year in Ridgefield.
