Hayward High has named Justin Redemer has been hired as its new football coach, athletic director Kristy Prasad confirmed on Monday.
“It’s a great opportunity to take over a program with this type of history,” Redemer said. “From the 1980s where they had a dominant program to the Casey Moreno era where he took them to the North Coast Section finals.”
He takes over for Bill Bishop. Bishop went 19-13, including two playoff appearances, in three seasons at the helm for the Farmers.
Redemer comes over to Hayward after spending seven seasons in the Liberty program. He was the offensive coordinator for Liberty as well as being their offensive line coach, strength and conditioning coach and the freshman and JV coach during his tenure in the Lions program.
Redemer is very happy for his first head coaching opportunity at the varsity level.
“I was looking all around the bay area and even in Southern California to see what head coaching vacancies were available,” he said. “I seen Hayward was looking for a coach and decide to put my name in there.”
Despite having the job less than a week, Redemer is already on the go with the Farmers program. He has already been introduced to the players and have named several assistants. Tom Turner, who has been part of the Hayward coaching staff in the past, will be the offensive coordinator. Neil Moore, who was an assistant at Liberty as well, will take over the reigns as the defensive coordinator.
