The FFCA (Fired Football Coaches Association) started in a small office after the 2008 football season in Tampa. “I had just been fired, and learned that there were many others just like me that needed a place to study football. The office is full of game film, grease boards and notepads. We’ve hosted NFL coaches, major college coaches, small college coaches, high school coaches and Pop Warner coaches. We’ve even hosted people who aren’t coaches at all, but love football. It’s amazing how many of us are out there.”
ABOUT THE FFCA
The FFCA is a football think-tank, which welcomes current and former coaches and players to study various phases of the game. The FFCA has become a highly regarded forum for many of the game’s greatest innovators and talent, who strive to improve their knowledge base in order to reach championship levels of performance.
Coach Gruden saw a need – football programs at many high schools are in need of support and financial assistance to aid in the development of student athletes. “I created the FFCA in an effort to give back to the game we all love: FOOTBALL! Please join me, and help keep the game strong!”
The FFCA is dedicated to giving back to the game of football, with a specific emphasis on high school athletic programs. Football plays an important role in youth development, and provides many opportunities for future success. The FFCA strives to assist and honor student athletes, parents, coaches and administrators, who put in the time and effort to enhance their lives through football. The FFCA seeks to accomplish this mission through advocacy, education, fundraising and philanthropy.
