Associate HC Chad Boudreau was previously the HC at Highland CC in Freeport, IL. So it looks like that'll really help the team dynamic with all the former HCC players we've brought in. Boudreau also worked under Coach Jeter at Milwaukee.
Assistant Coach Kyle Heikkinen was previously on Coach Boudreau's staff at HCC.
Assistant Coach Nick Irvin was previously the HC at Morgan Park HS where he had a 301-70 record over 12 seasons, which should help quite a bit on the Chicago-area recruiting front.

Irvin is a home run hire. Didn't think he was even in the realistic scope of candidates.

Wow, this staff seems extremely strong. Love Irvin’s Chicago ties. I am getting pretty darn excited for the season. Excited to see what this staff can do on the recruiting trail in the future.

HS coaches present a double-edged sword.

Yes, they can help in recruiting, but, can they make the transition to the college game?

Looking forward to meeting Coach Jeter and his staff this winter during the revitalization of the Leathernecks !

I think that's the nice thing about him not being the HC. He's obviously had a great deal of success at the HS level and is a great motivator, but now he'll get a chance to work for and learn from an experienced DI college coach. He can help with recruiting the Chicago area, and it seems like he has the personality to really connect with the kids, but it's not all "on him". Coach Jeter will be calling the shots at this point, so he can utilize Coach Irvin's skills that he already does well, and help bring him up to the DI college level if there's any areas that need work.
