It was a rather turbulent year for American Football outfit Coventry Jets last campaign. After just avoiding relegation from the BAFA NFC 1 South, the club decided that a revamp of the team set-up was very much needed.
It is with great sadness that the Coventry Jets will be heading into the 2018 season without not only one of the founding members but also former HC Gerry McManus.
After the new HC appointment Coventry Jets will be looking for a Special Teams Coach.
We are looking for enthusiastic, reliable and motivated coach to oversea all Special Team activities.
You will receive ongoing support from the club, coaching experience and coaching progression with view of gaining coaching qualifications if not already attained in line with the HC coaching strategy.
If you have previously coached or interested in stepping into the coaching side of American football then please get in touch. Contact HC Sam Kendall on firstname.lastname@example.org
Coventry Jets are welcoming a new head coach after after previous HC Colin Branagh steps down.
We would like to thank Colin for his hard work during the short term tenure as HC and wish him all the best for future endeavours.
Where there is one loss there is always a gain, a gain that we believe can push us to the next level.
A Coach who is young has great enthusiasm and passion for the game, a coach that has experience at GB level and will be exciting to see him take the next step along is coaching journey having previously been a HC at U21’s Level amongst other coaching positions.
We would like to welcome Sam Kendall who has stepped up from DC to HC.

I am very honoured to be appointed as Head Coach. Especially with a club that has a lot of great history and a great future in front of us. I look forward to building the brand of Coventry Jets over the coming seasons.
We believed from what we had seen from Sam that this was the right appointment hence approaching Sam before looking for another HC, to which we are happy he accepted the responsibility with open arms. Sam will have the clubs full support going forward in his task rebuild this team.
Coventry Jets would like to welcome back a familiar face who will now be taking on the role of Chairman until the end of the season with a further view of getting re elected come the end of the term.
Sean Martin ex HC will be stepping into a much more pivotal role to help with the running of the club using his knowledge and expertise within the game, Sean is one of the reasons Coventry Jets are still going with his hard work behind the scenes including stabilising the team enabling us to start the re building module.
We spoke with Sean about his appointment to which he had this to say:
I am very pleased to be back at the Jets and looking forward to helping the club achieve the goals we set ourselves two years ago. Thank you to Bruce and Romain for the work they put in and I hope I can carry on and help the club to become everything we want it to be.
