    New QB Coach

    SFA Assistant Coach Jay Rodgers Resigns
    SFA quarterbacks coach Jay Rodgers accepts position at Iowa State

    Dec. 6, 2006
    NACOGDOCHES - Stephen F. Austin assistant coach Jay Rodgers has resigned announced Director of Athletics Robert Hill Wednesday afternoon. Rodgers will join former SFA head coach Robert McFarland as an assistant at Iowa State.
    Rodgers spent the past two seasons coaching the Lumberjack quarterbacks. During that time he helped produce a first-team all-conference quarterback in Danny Southall and 2005 honorable mention All-SLC honoree, Zeke Dixon. -SFA-

    Jay Rodgers is entering his second year with the Lumberjack football program and will work with the SFA quarterbacks. Rodgers is entering his seventh year of collegiate coaching.


    Rodgers produced two of the top signal callers in the conference last season in Zeke Dixon and Danny Southall. Dixon became one of the top producing quarterbacks in SFA history under the tutelage of Rodgers. The 'Jacks led the SLC in pass offense averaging 283.5 yards per game and Dixon finished among the league's top three in passing yards and total offense in 2005. He recorded the school's fourth-best single-season mark in passing yards (2,407) and the third-best mark in touchdown passes (20).
    Southall battled his way into the 'Jacks' starting lineup and became the league's top-rated passer with a 143.1 efficiency rating before an injury prematurely ended his season.
    A 2000 graduate of Indiana, Rodgers served as the quarterbacks' coach at Southwest Missouri State in 2004 and helped the Bears post their first winning season in seven years.
    Rodgers spent the 2003 season as the quarterbacks/receivers' coach and passing game coordinator at Dodge City Community College in Dodge City, Kansas. Dodge City ranked first in the conference in passing yardage and third in passing efficiency for the season. They also were the eighth-ranked passing offense in the NJCAA in 2003.
    In 2002, Rodgers served as a defensive graduate assistant at LSU when the Tigers were SEC Western Division Champs. Rodgers worked with defensive backs, assisting coach Charlie Harbison. The Tigers were second in the nation in passing defense and fifth nationally in total defense. Prior to that, he worked on the offensive side of the ball with the Tigers in 2001, assisting Jimbo Fisher and Stan Hixson for the 2001 SEC Champion Tigers. Rodgers also spent one season as a recruiting intern at The Ohio State University. Rodgers spent three seasons at Indiana where he started 15 games at quarterback before transferring to Southwest Missouri State for his senior season. He was voted team captain and was the team MVP in his lone season with the Bears in 1999, setting several single-season passing records. A native of Austin, Rodgers attended high school at Austin Westlake.

    Re: New QB Coach

    Jay Rodgers Joins Southwest Missouri State Staff; Joe Pendry Leaves


    Southwest Missouri State University Sports Information, Mark Stillwell



    The restructuring of the Southwest Missouri State football staff continues for the 2004 season with the addition of Jay Rodgers as the Bears’ quarterbacks coach while former assistant coach Joe Pendry is leaving SMS to take a position in the National Football League.

    Rodgers becomes the third new assistant to be added by head coach Randy Ball as the staff takes shape for next season. His appointment is subject to the approval of the SMS Board of Governors.

    Pendry, who was at SMS for one season and coached the Bears’ receivers during the 2003 campaign, has been named the new offensive line coach for the NFL Houston Texans. Most recently, Pendry was head coach for the West team in the Las Vegas All-American Classic Jan. 17, in which former SMS fullback Nate Schurman scored the winning touchdown for the West team in the fourth quarter.

    Jay Rodgers was the Bears’ starting quarterback in 1999, Ball’s first season at the SMS helm. Rodgers turned in a spectacular campaign as he passed for more than 230 yards in eight of the Bears’ 11 games. He set SMS single season records with 2,768 yards in total offense and 2,741 yards passing and also collected a single game record five touchdown passes against Southern Illinois (10/30/99). Rodgers’s 24 touchdown passes for the season are eight more than any other quarterback in SMS grid history and his 150.14 passing efficiency rating for 1999 is the best single season figure on record at SMS.

    Rodgers, who transferred to SMS from Indiana University for his senior season, returned to IU to complete his undergraduate degree. He was a staff intern at Ohio State in 2000, spent the 2001 and 2002 seasons as a graduate assistant football coach at LSU, and spent the 2003 season as quarterbacks and receivers coach and passing game coordinator at Dodge City (Kan.) Community College. Dodge City led the Jayhawk League in passing and was ranked eighth in the nation among junior colleges in that category.

    Re: New QB Coach

    Not to crap on the new coaches but a 4-7 record isn't real impressive and only scoring more then 17 points in one game all year. They lost to Delta State who I've never even heard of. SFA isn't probably going to send us a thank you note.

    Two positives on this hire. He's from Texas and he cuts the "coaches that look like Mangino" down to 50%.

    Re: New QB Coach

    Kind of a natural hire, most likely have McFarland on the field and Rodgers up in the booth. I still very much like the OC hire, but only time will tell. All indications look to me that both McFarland and Rodgers came into a situation that did not have a full cupboard and have turned the corner on the SFA program so the record there probably doesn't mean that much. But this is all based from afar on opinions of fans and writers.

    Re: New QB Coach

    the one thing with Rodgers is that he does have ties with the midwest, which is good since everyone else has only worked in the south. At least Rodgers has ties to Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, a pretty big juco in Kansas, too, it helps, along with the fact that he is from Austin. I am not sure about these guys credentials yet, they are pretty good but can they translate to the big 12, I would like to see the remaining guys come from some bigger programs. I think with these first 2 assistants I think we are seeing guys that the Offensive and Defensive coordinators know and trust that are being brought in for that reason mostly as well as they are young talents. Hopefully one or two guys from UT can be brought in now, that would help a lot, we need some more big 12 guys or big 10 guys or SEC guys, as much as the Sun Belt, MAC and Southland Conferences rule, they aren't the big guys!!!!

    Best place to call plays is from the booth, so he will be doing that IMO.

    We may need to pass 350 yards a game if we do not recruit a real running back.

    Re: New QB Coach

    I noticed that he has at least somewhat of an ISU connection having coached with Stan Hixon at LSU. Hixon was a great WR from Florida for Bruce in the 70's. He's now with the 'skins and probably wouldn't consider a move to his alma mater without a coordinator slot available.

    Re: New QB Coach

    $300k will buy a lot of Big Macs.


    Old staff to show how many people it takes to coach football, as posted by Jeremy:

    Dan McCarney - Head Coach
    Tony Alford - Assistant Head Coach/Running Back Coach
    Barney Cotton - Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach
    John Skladany - Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers
    Chris Ash - Secondary Coach/Recruiting Coordinator
    Mike Nelson - Defensive Line Coach
    Todd Fitch - Quarterback Coach/Passing Game Coordinator
    Mike Grant - Wide Reciever Coach
    Matt McGettigan - Strength and Conditioning
    Brian Schneider - Special Teams/Tight End Coach
    Shawn Simms - Outside Linebacker Coach
    Don Knock - Director of Football Operations
    Scot Knock - Assistant Director of Football Operations
    Chris Ruf - Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach
    Mike Motl - Video Coordinator
    Erik Link - Graduate Assistant (Offense)
    Bo Beck - Graduate Assistant (Defense)


    My favorite coach was Brian Schneider. He appeared to improve his troops throughtout the season. Just had bad playcalling. Looks like we need 5-6 more coaches to be named and 4 other asundry positions.
