Girls soccer coach removed to move  team in new direction

Liberty High School boys basketball coach Jevon Green was suspended for the remainder of his contract after being arrested Dec. 26 for failure to appear in court after driving with a suspended license.

Police responded to a burglary alarm at Liberty on Dec. 26 to find Green doing laundry inside the building, according to John Urquhart, spokesman for the King County Sheriff’s Office. Police ran a check on Green, discovered the warrant for his arrest and took him into custody. His bail was set at $350.

Kathy Miyauchi, district executive director of personnel services, and Patrick Murphy, district executive director of high schools for the district, wrote a letter to the Liberty community addressing the matter.

In the letter, Miyauchi and Murphy said the incident occurred while Green was acting in his official capacity as the team’s coach and that his suspension came after an investigation by district officials. They did not give any details on the incident, nor did they comment further.

Eric Larson served as the boys basketball head coach for the remainder of the season.

Green could not be reached for comment.

Also, girls soccer coach Darren Tremblay was removed from his position as girls soccer coach.

“Liberty High School just felt it was time to go in a different direction,” Stark Porter, Liberty athletic director, said about Tremblay.

Tremblay also coaches the boys team, and he will continue to serve in that position.

Malia Arrant will become Liberty’s new girls soccer coach. Arrant previously coached at Eastside Catholic and is currently director of coaching for Dos FC in Kent.
