New home

Former CIS Head Coach newest addition to PFC team.

Jeff Stead has found a new home.

The former Alberta Golden Bears head coach is the newest addition to the coaching staff with the Edmonton Wildcats of the Prairie Football Conference in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL). Stead will serve as defensive assistant coach with the team.

Stead brings a wealth of experience and talent to the position.

From March 2011 until this past December, he took over as head coach of the Golden Bears from Jerry Friesen.  During his tenure with the Golden Bears, the team was 0-16.  The native of Okotoks, Alberta was on staff with the Golden Bears since 2008.

Previous to the Golden Bears, Stead spent 10 years with the Manitoba Bisons.  He experienced his greatest coaching success as offensive coordinator of the team in 2007, when the Bisons won the Vanier Cup.

Stead played college football for Minnesota NCAA Division 2 team, Bemidji State Beavers.

Wildcats head coach Darcy Park released a statement on the Wildcats website on the addition of Stead to the team’s coaching staff.

“At the end of the day we want individuals who want to be a part of our program,” said Park. “Jeff will add a different voice to an experienced coaching staff and will fit in nicely working with the other coaches on the defensive side of the ball.”

The Wildcats open training camp on Monday.
