The Willamette Bearcats have hired Isaac Parker as the team’s new head football coach. He returns to his alma mater with this move.

Parker is taking over a program that went 1-8 in 2018. He takes over for former head coach Glen Fowles, who was let go after the season.

“We are very excited to have Isaac returning to Willamette to lead our football program,” says Rob Passage, director of intercollegiate athletics. “Not only does he bring outstanding teaching and coaching experience, he also adds a tremendous passion for building community within the program, the university and Salem.”

Parker was previously the Lewis & Clark College Pioneers Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach since 2015. He also spent three seasons as the McNary High School Celtics Head Coach in Keizer, Oregon.

As a player, he was a two-year team captain. He also was a member of the 1999 team that won the Northwest Conference Championship and advanced to the NCAA Division III playoffs.

“I experienced a Willamette University that was formative for me in my life,” Parker says. “The summation of my experiences at Willamette — in the classroom, on the football field, in the campus community and in the community of Salem — molded me to be ready for life.

“In a way, Willamette’s motto, ‘Not unto ourselves alone are we born,’ reinforced my Hawaiian-cultured upbringing, which was to build ‘ohana’, family, wherever I go.”
