The Langley Rams have announced they will have a new head coach in the 2016 season as Defensive Coordinator Khari Joseph takes over for Jeff Alamolhoda who stepped down.
Khari is a native of Montreal and graduate of Laurenhill Academy. He played community football for the St. Laurent Spartans and Junior Football for the North Shore Broncos of the QJFL. He was the Broncos rookie of the year in 1996 and Defensive Player of the Year in 1998. Khari played three seasons for Brian Dobie’s Bisons at the University of Manitoba and was honoured as a CIS Canada West All Star in 2005.

Khari joined the Rams coaching staff in 2012 and put together a Cullen Cup winning defensive unit that was considered by many as the best in the Nation. Prior to joining the Rams Family he was a member of the CJFL Winnipeg Rifles staff for five seasons, four as defensive backs coach and one as the Rifles defensive coordinator.

Under Khari, the Rams are giving up 204.7 points a season, including a Conference low 161 in his first season, back in 2012.

Khari resides in South Surrey with his lovely wife Chantal, his two boys, 11 year old Kaylen and toddler Aayden, who are both already on the Rams recruiting list.

The Rams and the BCFC will open up the new season in the summer.
