Anacortes hires a football coach

Anacortes has turned to a home-grown product to coach its football team.

Dick Freier, Anacortes class of 1995, has been named the school’s new coach.

“He’s been coaching for over 20 years,” Anacortes athletic director Erik Titus said. “He’s held a lot of different positions. He knows the program and is a longtime Anacortian. He understands the makeup of the community.”
