IMG Academy Football Announces New Offensive and Defensive Coordinators
It was announced today that current IMG Academy Defensive Back Coach Cris Dishman will be promoted to Defensive Coordinator of the National Football Team and long-time collegiate coach Dave Schramm will be the new Offensive Coordinator for the National Team.
Dishman has been with the Academy since early 2020 and was a part of the staff that led the team to their first National Championship last year. He boasts a 17-year playing career, starting at Purdue University before moving on to play professionally in Houston, Washington, Minnesota and Kansas City. Dishman has been coaching professional teams from a defensive standpoint since 2005 and has been known for helping to improve passing defense for both the San Diego Chargers and the Berlin Thunder.
Schramm comes to the Academy with nearly 30 years of collegiate coaching experience, coaching in 13 bowl games, 10 playoff games and eight conference championship teams. While he was most recently coaching with Utah State, Dave has also worked with Weber State, Fresno State, Utah, San Diego State and Texas State, among others. In all, Schramm has coached seven offensive players to the NFL.
“We are excited for Cris to continue to grow with us and the team at IMG Academy and thrilled with the coaching experience Dave brings to the table,” said Football Director, George Hegamin. “This team is coming off an amazing year and we know these coaches along with the rest of our staff will continue to take the athletes to the next level.”
