Makoa Freitas was officially introduced as the Kahuku football interim head coach Sunday by the KahukuHigh.org website.
Freitas takes over for Vavae Tata, who spent two years at the helm and brought the Red Raiders a Division I state championship and another appearance in the first Open Division state title game.
No reason was given for the change, and the announcement does not mention Tata at all.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser first reported the change on its website Friday morning and followed with an article in the newspaper Saturday.
