Mark Stewart has announced that he is resigning his head football coaching position at Meadowdale High School. Stewart has accepted a position with Garfield High School in Seattle.

Stewart was hired in 2000 to take over a struggling Meadowdale football program. He compiled an 87-49 overall record during his 13 years at Meadowdale, competing in the 3A/4A Western Conference. The Mavericks made the playoffs nine years under Stewart, qualifying for the state playoffs seven times.

β€œIt is with mixed feelings that I make this decision. For the past thirteen years, the support that I have received from the Meadowdale community has been very meaningful to me,” Stewart said in a Jan. 7 press release. “The positive relationships and friendships I have had with my players, staff, administration and community will always be with me and will be remembered as a significant time in my life.”

Meadowdale will be opening the head football coach position in the next two days. More information regarding the job posting can be found at
