Revolution Coaching Staff Lead East Coast Bowl
RICHMOND, VA.: SportsQuest and the Richmond Revolution announced today that their coaching staff led the North and South squads in the 9th annual East Coast Bowl, held this past Saturday in Petersburg, VA. The East Coast Bowl brings together the top players from Division I-FCS, Division II, Division III and NAIA levels. In all there were 75 players from across the country, representing colleges and universities in 22 different states.
Revolution Head Coach Steve Criswell was brought on to be the game coordinator, with Offensive Coordinator Brent Williams coaching the South team. Williams was assisted during the game by Revolution coaches John Trott and Brian Edmonds. The North team was coached by Defensive coordinator Billy Jarvis with help from Tim Jones and Mike McIntire. The North squad won 27-21, on a late touchdown pass from Albany State QB A.J. McKenna to Northern Michigan Wide Receiver Zach Nichols. The win helped to erase thoughts of a 27-0 defeat at the hands of the South squad in last year's game. The game was played in front of scouts from NFL Teams as well as CFL (Canadian Football League) teams. The two days of preparation leading up to the game also included a combine that will be used to earn players invites to training camps, the NFL Combine and eventually to professional teams.
