|Coach Rick Worman|
MVSU DELTA DEVILS
Rick Worman has begun his duties at MVSU as quarterbacks coach, replacing Mike Pizinski who recently left to pursue other opportunities. Worman will also assist with wide receivers and running backs.
The former Canadian Football League (CFL) quarterback hopes to use his professional experience as a teaching tool for MVSU student-athletes.
"I want to use my knowledge from the pro ranks to help develop student-athletes on this level," said Worman.
The Fresno, California native comes to Valley after serving as a scout for the Ottawa-based CFL team. Before that, he served as the running backs coach for the CFL's Hamilton Tigercats. He also spent seven seasons with the Edmonton Eskimos, working as a West Coast Scout for four years before joining the coaching staff as a quarterbacks coach in 2007. He added the title of offensive coordinator in 2008.
Prior to joining the Eskimos, Worman spent time as the head coach of the Arena Football League 2's Fresno Frenzy in 2002 and the offensive coordinator of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2001. That season, the Bombers led the league in virtually every offensive category en route to a 14-4 record and a Grey Cup appearance.
Worman's coaching career includes three Grey Cup appearances and two Grey Cup championships. He previously coached former CFL quarterback MVPs Ricky Ray and Khari Jones.
He also spent one season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the College of the Siskiyous.
