REDMOND — Stan Manley, a two-time state champion coach at Eugene’s Sheldon High School who in May stepped down as head coach at Linfield College, has been named the new head baseball coach at Redmond High School.

Kevin Bryant, district athletic director for the Redmond School District, announced Tuesday that Manley had been hired to replace former Panthers baseball coach Doug Taylor, who recently accepted a vice principal position at Redmond High.

Manley, 59, coached at Sheldon for 14 years over two stints. He guided the Irish to Class 6A state championships in 2013 and 2015 and to the state final in 2014.

Manley was a three-year baseball letterman at Linfield in McMinnville, where he graduated in 1982. He was an assistant coach with the NCAA Division III Wildcats for two years before taking over for longtime coach Scott Carnahan in 2018. In two seasons as head coach at Linfield, Manley’s teams posted an overall record of 31-51.

According to a Redmond School District release, Manley will also be an instructional assistant at Redmond High.
