Steve Call, who coached the Edmonds-Woodway boys basketball team for the past three seasons, has resigned.
Call cited the distance from his home and work to the high school as the main reason for his decision. Call lives in Kirkland and works in Seattle and Bellevue, creating a long commute to Edmonds-Woodway High School.
“It was a tough decision,” Call said. “It was really all about moving out of the district and into my other vocation. and spending more time with family. I had a great experience. Great group of parents and kids and it was just a great, great experience.”
The Warriors went 45-28 in Call’s three years leading the program, finishing second in the Wesco 4A South conference each season. This past year, Edmonds-Woodway placed third at the 4A District 1 tournament before falling to Bothell 67-55 in a crossover game with the No. 3 team from the Kingco Conference.
After the 2013-14 season, Call and his wife took some time to discuss his future with the Warriors. After about a month, he talked to Edmonds-Woodway Athletic Director Angie McGuire to inform her of his decision.
Soon after, he talked to his players.
Call said the Warriors have a strong freshman group coming up, and that the next coach at Edmonds-Woodway — which moves to 3A next season — should have a lot to work with.
“We have a phenomenal freshman group coming in, it’ll be great for the next guy that comes in to be able to grow with that group,” Call said. “... I think it sets them up well to compete. Wesco 3A, in my opionion, might be a little tougher.”
Prior to coming to Edmonds-Woodway, Call coached at Shoreline Christian and Juanita. He has 15 years of coaching experience and hasn’t ruled out a return to the court in the future.
“I think I’ll coach someday, just not now,” Call said. “I’m not going to say never, but it does seem like the right time to step back. But I’m not leaving to find other opportunities. If I lived closer I would have stayed.”
