It was announced earlier today that the University of Redlands has hired Jim Good as the Bulldogs' offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator. Good replaces Charlie Roche, who accepted a head-coaching position at the College of the Siskiyous immediately following the 2010 football season.
"I'm fired up to join the University of Redlands football program," Good stated. "I look forward to assisting Coach Maynard and everyone associated with the program in building upon their winning tradition."
Good joins the Maroon and Gray after a four-year stint as the head coach at Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. While overseeing the squad, he led the Pipers to their best finish since the 1997 season while increasing the roster size by 30 players. In addition, Good played an instrumental role in improving the team's overall GPA, revealing his commitment to the Division III student-athlete experience.
In addition, Good brings significant coaching experience from his time at Texas Lutheran University, Illinois College, and Linfield College (OR).
While at Texas Lutheran, he served as the associate head coach with responsibilities as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. During his final three seasons, the TLU offense finished as high as 10th in the nation in passing offense while breaking school records in various offensive categories. In his first season as the offensive coordinator, the team finished with a 7-3 record, which was the most wins in over 20 years.
He garnered similar success at Illinois College, helping players reset the school's single-season passing and rushing records.
"Coach Good strikes me as an extraordinary coach who thrives on hard work, preparation, and organization. I am confident that his comprehensive knowledge of today's running and passing schemes will best utilize our players' talents," Head Coach Mike Maynard said. "Further, Coach Good has a proven record of recruiting and building successful offenses at every stop along his exceptional coaching career."
Good completed his Master of Science in Exercise and Sport Science at Oregon State University after earning a Bachelor of Arts in Exercise Science from Linfield. While competing for the Wildcat football team, this four-year letter-winner garnered all-conference honors as a senior running back after contributing to the team's 33-9-1 record during his tenure.
Good and his family look forward to relocating to Southern California.
