Pope John Paul II High School, the new Catholic high school opening in Fall 2002, has named current CPA assistant coach Jeff L. Brothers as its head football coach, according to Principal Hans Broekman.
Brothers is a Vanderbilt graduate who will also teach mathematics at Pope John Paul II. Brothers graduated from Brentwood Academy, where he lettered in football and baseball. At Vanderbilt, he was a four-year letterman and an all-SEC football selection in 1992. In that same year, he was a pre-season All-American, won the Civitan Award and the MVP Award, and led the SEC in punt returns.
Brothers began his coaching career at Brentwood Academy and in 1996 became assistant head football coach at Christ Presbyterian Academy. His team won the state football championship in 2000 with a 15-0 record. In four years at the school, Brothers had eight players sign Division I scholarships, while four were Mr. Football nominees and two won that award.
