Greg McMillan hired as new Quincy football coach

Greg McMillan, the son of former Cascade coach Jack McMillan, was announced last week as the new head coach at Quincy. The Jackrabbits will make a return to the Caribou Trail League this season after a realignment of schools in the WIAA.

McMillan says he followed his Dad around in locker rooms as a kid throughout North Central Washington, so it’s only natural that he follows in his footsteps.

McMillan inherits a brand-new school and stadium in which to play. Now the challenge is to revive a program that has finished under .500 in six of the past seven seasons.
