Potential Tiger Offensive Coordinator Candidates
St. Xavier Football is reportedly switching offensive coordinators, which has been the buzz of the blogosphere surrounding Kentucky High School Football all off-season long.
Now, the focus shifts to who will replace Coach Chad Lyons as the offensive coordinator. It’s a position that’s sure to garner a lot of interest, especially with attractive weapons like Colin O’Daniel, Chase Rowan, Blake Roshkowski and others returning in 2015.
Here’s a list of potential candidates who could be the Tigers’ offensive coordinator for next season.
- Tim Tebow (SEC Network Analyst) — Tim has reportedly reached out to Coach Wolford in recent weeks looking for an opportunity to return to the sidelines after a short time as a TV personality traveling the country covering SEC Football. He said his interest was in working at a school with great academic standards and phenomenal football tradition. If Tebow gets the job at Tiger Tech, you could definitely see a return of the jump pass and more smash-mouth quarterback run plays.
- Jon Gruden (FFCA) — This is the name to watch when it comes to the next offensive coordinator at St. X. Alumni have been calling for him to come to Br. Thomas More Stadium for quite some time and he could be a great fit right next to Coach Wolford on the sideline. Could you imagine their coaches meetings? That’d be wild man. A.J. Breit better be hoping this is the move the program is looking to make. If I were a betting man, this will be the next guy.
- Andre Coleman (St. Xavier Basketball Freshman Head Coach) — A dark horse in the search for the next OC may come from another sport underneath the stands of the football field. Coleman has been mastering the art of play calling by playing Madden since the game was created in 1994. This experience is exactly what the Tigers need to regain a strangle hold on the difficult competition of Kentucky High School Football.
