SteadJeff Stead came to the Wildcats in 2013 from the CIS. Willing to help out wherever he was needed, Jeff coached the Defensive Line alongside Dan Schutte for a season, before moving over to the offensive side of the ball, where he took over as Quarterbacks coach in 2014. It didn’t take long for the players to adapt to Jeff’s “tough love” style of coaching, and began to push themselves as hard as he was pushing them. This season Jeff stepped into the role of Offensive Coordinator in addition to coaching the Quarterbacks. Jeff is known to his athletes as being a tough coach who holds them accountable, but the first to crack a joke and bring a smile to their face when the time is right. On behalf of the entire Offense, and especially the Quarterbacks, thank you Coach Stead!


WinkelEven though 2016 is Jarred Winkel’s first season coaching with the Wildcats, he is no stranger to the team. Jarred played three seasons as a Wildcat, and was the 1999 CJFL Rookie of the Year. He finished his football career as the 2nd All-Time leading rusher in the U of A Golden Bears history. Jarred arrives at every practice with high energy, an upbeat attitude and a willingness to push his athletes to view their own potential. He isn’t afraid to ask for more out of every practice and is the first to celebrate their successes with them. On behalf of the Running Backs, thank you Coach Winkel!
