Kamiak High School has hired Jason Davis as its new head volleyball coach.

The longtime Mukilteo resident replaces Greg Post, who decided to step down in part to spend more time with his family and to ease up on his schedule.

Davis brings an extensive club coaching background in addition to high school and community college stints. His most recent position was as head coach at Sultan High School. Davis also was the head coach at Edmonds Community College from 2012-15 and was an assistant there for two years prior. He also has coached club volleyball since 2003.

“I’m very excited to have this opportunity,” said Davis, who has an 11-year old daughter in the Mukilteo School District.

Davis describes his coaching philosophy as extending beyond the volleyball court.

“One of the things I fell in love with is being able to teach life lessons to players, things that will apply to the real world and how they apply to volleyball,” Davis said. “My first players are now in their 30s and I like seeing them grow up and become contributing members to society.

“My philosophy is really based around the players and making sure they are getting the most out of the system.”

Davis, who has lived in Mukilteo for more than 10 years, said that the proximity of Kamiak High School to his home wasn’t really the major factor in his decision to apply for the position. He was looking for the right fit.

“It’s a pretty special program,” said Davis, who grew up in Edmonds and is a 1991 graduate of Edmonds-Woodway High School. “There’s a lot of talent going through this program. We want a state run. I think we have the players… I watched some film and saw how they were playing last year. If all of the players come back, I think this is a really talented team that can go a long way.”
