Rich Ellerson Speaker Profile
Rich Ellerson Biography
Rich Ellerson is currently the head football coach at Army. Prior to that, he served as the head coach for Cal Poly and, for one season, Southern Utah University. While at Cal Poly, Ellerson's teams secured three conference championships and compiled a 5634 record, to make him the third winningest coach in school history.
In 2008 it was speculated he was a candidate to replace Washington's head coach, Ty Willingham. However, he instead accepted an offer to become Army's head coach in December 2008.
According to media speculation, other potential candidates for the vacant Army head coaching position included: Mike Sullivan, a West Pointer and wide receivers coach for the New York Giants; Greg Gregory, South Florida offensive coordinator and former Army assistant coach; Charlie Taaffe, former Maryland offensive coordinator, Canadian Football League coach, and Army offensive coordinator; and Ed Warriner, Kansas offensive coordinator who spent 13 years as an Army assistant coach. Army also gauged the interest of both Navy's offensive and defensive coordinator, Ivin Jasper and Buddy Green, respectively.
Ellerson has several family ties to the Academy. His father and two of his brothers attended West Point. His brother, John, was a captain of the Army football team while at West Point from 1960 to 1963. Rich Ellerson said, I grew up with that special connection to Army Football. At that age, watching my big brother captain the Army football team, living on Army posts, it was just the biggest thing in our life. It was the foundation of my football experience, not just my Army football experience, and obviously, football is a big part of my life.
He also said: More than any other place in America, this is an important job. This is the United States Military Academy. We're playing football. We need to be good at this. We need to be. Everybody wants to win. We need to. He also expressed a belief in the importance in working with recruits at the United States Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS) in order to improve the pool of candidates for the varsity team.
Ellerson also referred offhandedly to Navy, in comparing the type of offensive scheme he plans on bringing to Army. I'm a triple option guy, and our triple option looks similar to some other team that we see every once in awhile, but it is not exactly alike ... What we do fits well with the Academy at every level.
