Former Sedro-Woolley coach Brett Farrar to lead Blaine boys hoops
May 4, 2018
Blaine High School looked within the Northwest Conference to fill their vacant boys basketball heading coaching position. The Borderites will be led by former Sedro-Woolley head coach Brett Farrar.
Sean Linville announced the addition to The Doug Lange Network Friday.
"He was a guy we kind of targeted early on that we would be very interested in being our coach, " said Linville. "His philosophy seems to fit some of our other programs, so it's a nice transition...the kids are going to hear a lot of the same stuff."
Farrar resigned at Sedro-Woolley after the end of the 17-18 season, his 6th as head coach and 10th with the program. He posted a career record of 67-and-63 with the Cubs.
Farrar plans on bringing his fast-break style from Sedro-Woolley to the Border City.
"We'll have different half-court sets, but as far as my overall philosophy we're really looking to push tempo, control tempo, control the pace of the game," said Farrar.
Blaine is in need of a turnaround. Coming off a 2-and-18 campaign, Farrar replaces Borderite coaching legend Rob Ridnour who agreed to return to the bench last year to coach the squad for one season.
"I'm excited for it, to embrace the challenge," said Farrar. "Really looking forward to getting to work with the kids at Blaine, I've heard great things about the community and the support overall."
