Troy Taylor next month will leave his post as Folsom High School’s co-head football coach for a position at Eastern Washington, a Big Sky Conference power.
Taylor will be co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Eagles, who have won four Big Sky championships since 2010 and the 2010 Football Championship Subdivision national title.
“I’m excited, ready for a new challenge, and it seems like a unique fit,” Taylor said. “I loved my time at Folsom, being part of a great program, all the great players and coaches.”
Taylor was The Sacramento Bee’s Player of the Year quarterbacking Cordova High School in 1985, then set passing records at Cal. In the 1990s, he coached at Colorado and Cal, primarily wide receivers.
In 2012, Taylor became Folsom’s co-coach, joining Kris Richardson. He helped guide the Bulldogs to a 58-3 record, four Sac-Joaquin Section championships and the 2014 CIF State Division I title.
