Message to FBS Athletic Directors: 2017 is the Year to Hire Ivin Jasper as Your Next Head Football Coach

123 Wins–15 seasons–not one scholarship football player.

Ivin Jasper is in his 17th year at the Naval Academy, his 15th as the quarterbacks coach and his ninth as the offensive coordinator. He has been an integral part of a staff that has brought the Midshipmen back into the national spotlight with a 111-56 (.665) record over the last 13 years, that includes 12 bowl games, 10 Commander-In-Chief’s Trophies and a 14-0 mark against Army.

Additionally, his work has catapulted Navy to No. 1 in the nation in rushing five times, including an NCAA-record four-straight years from 2005-08.  Navy has never finished lower than sixth in the nation in rushing during Jasper’s tenure.

Jasper came to Navy from Georgia Southern where he served as the quarterbacks and fullbacks coach for three years and helped lead the Eagles to a 38-6 record and back-to-back NCAA Division I-AA National Championships in 1999 and 2000.

Navy wins every year with zero scholarship football players.  Ivin Jasper is the reason why.  I enthusiastically recommend Ivin as your next Head Football Coach.
