Wildcats Announce 2014 Coaching Staff

The coaching staff has been finalized for 2014, and we are very excited to welcome a few new names to the coaching staff.

On the defensive side of the ball, all of the coaches from 2013 are returning. Greg High enters his 14th season as Defensive Coordinator and LB coach. Joining him again this season is Dan Schutte as the Defensive Line Coach, and Len Mora and Nolan Garriock who are working with the Secondary. One addition to the defensive staff is Wildcat Alumnus and current Edmonton Eskimo Ryan King, who is working with the LB’s.

On the offense, both Offensive Coordinator Vince Baraniecz and QB Coach Jason Dailey have moved on to new roles within the Wildcat Organization. 2013 Assistant Head Coach Greg Tyszka has taken over the role as Offensive Coordinator. Tyszka is entering his 15th season coaching with the Wildcats, and has been an integral part of the Offense for many years, making this a seamless transition. Ryan Branting will remain as the receivers coach. Moving back to the offensive side of the ball is Jeff Stead, who will take over as the Quarterback Coach. “Jeff’s experience will have a big impact on the continual growth and development of our QB’s and the offensive in general”, says Head Coach Darcy Park. After spending a season working with the running backs part-time, Jim Nahrebeski will officially take the title of Running Back coach for 2014. New to the offense coaching staff this season is former Wildcat and 2007 PFC lineman of the year Sean Brown.
