Coaches Profile – Darryl Jones

The UNSW Raiders are pleased to announce the continuing appointment of Darryl Jones as the 2019 Raiders Colts Head Coach. Its fair to say that it was a tough season last year for the Raiders Colts languishing at the bottom of the ladder. Coach Darryl has vowed a renewed vision for the Colts to bring them back into the winning column. “It was difficult being torn between the two teams last year with the coaches trying to coach the Colts but needing to warm up for the mens” he said. “The Colts this season will be training on alternate days to the mens team to allow the coaches to have full commitment and focus to the team.”

Coaching Philosophy:

“We teach young men to be the best versions of themselves on and off the field. Winning AND losing in football helps to define who we are, and who we want to be in life. To play hard and play safe.”
