A: Contact Director of Coaching Operations if you are interested in becoming a coach at any level for the Dawgs.

All coaches will also be required to help out with equipment fittings and equipment handout prior to the start of the season.
Q: Why are there so many coaches for each team? My son's soccer team only has two.
A: Football is a very technical sport. Players have to be taught both offensive and defensive skills and positions. Many coaching staffs are made up of a head coach and "experts" in each of the different disciplines. Additionally, because football is a contact sport, the additional coaching staff increases the safety factor at practice while players are learning new skills.
