New Breed of Football Coach

With all the coaching changes occurring in College football and the NFL, many of the same names get recycled every year. As everyone focusses on a similar pool of candidates, General Mangers and Athletic Directors need to start looking outside the box for new talent. On that note, I am nominating a High School football coaching legend that is ready for the next level.

Head Coach Ricky Jimmy has been leading the Eisenhower Screaming Eagles of Rialto, CA for 35 seasons. During his tenure Coach Jimmy lead his teams to 352-3-1 record and has coached such athletic luminaries as Rob Chow, Rick Chow, and NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott. During the Summer, Coach Jimmy runs his highly successful "I Will Make You Cry" football camps and also acts as a special advisor to Pete Carroll running clinics at the USC Trojan football camps. Aside from his unparalleled football instruction, Coach Jimmy is also a solid citizen who enriches his community every day. He is the Junior Varsity Water Polo coach and even moderates the bingo night at the local Rialto Senior Living Center every week.

In short, Ricky Jimmy is a leader both on and off the field and should be considered for one of the many coaching vacancies available in both College and Professional football. Hopefully somebody will give this guy a shot.
