St. Stanislaus Finds New Football Coach
The St. Stanislaus football program didn’t have to look very far to find its successor to former head coach Bill Conides who left last month for Denham Springs.
This morning, the Rock-A-Chaws officially promoted offensive line coach Jeff Jordan as the new head man at SSC.
Jordan, who played at Southern Miss in the 80’s before transferring to LSU, first came to Bay St. Louis in 2015 serving as an assistant under his good friend Conides for the last two seasons.
Now, Jordan is a head coach in the state of Mississippi for the first time in his three decades of coaching experience, a dream job for the next in line. “I’ve had some head coaching experience and when I came here I decided that I was at a point in my career where I would be content as an assistant, but after having been here for a couple of years and acclimating to the school and realizing what the mission of this school was, I felt a strong urge to apply for the job. I’m glad I did. It’s a great institution, full of tradition and I’m just really flattered and honored to hopefully be able to uphold that tradition.”
St. Stanislaus Principal Patrick McGrath said, “One of the first things that I realized when we hired Jeff was that he obviously comes to us with a huge amount of experience, football knowledge that many coaches simply don’t have, almost 30 years of football experience. What we discovered over the last two years is that he also has a huge love for what it means to be a Rock-A-Chaw.”
Jordan was in charge of the o-line that protected LSU commit Myles Brennan, who went on to break the all-time state records for passing yards and touchdowns.
