2010 – Erik Kohler Embarks on Football Coaching CareerRead More
As a freshman at Oaks Christian School, Erik played football for the first time ever and fell in love with the sport. In his sophomore year, he moved up to the varsity squad and became a standout as an offensive lineman under iconic Coach Bill Redell. He was recruited by multiple Division 1 colleges and chose the University of Washington. Erik played for three years before he was sidelined by injuries. He turned a negative into a positive, however, and has chosen to pursue a career in coaching while still finishing his last year of college. Following in the footsteps of OCS Coach Bill Redell, he has taken a job at a Washington state area high school as the offensive line coach. Upon graduation, he hopes to get a master’s degree in coaching. “I think that as a former athlete, I have a good opportunity to use the knowledge that I have attained over the course of the last eight years and use it towards coaching the sport that I love,” said Erik. “It’s an exciting and bright future for me and I am already truly enjoying coaching and cannot wait to see the opportunities it brings to me.”
