With heavy hearts we share news that coach Jim Bernhardt has died. Jim was beloved by many he coached, he coached with and countless others. A highly successful high school coach in both New York and Florida, Jimmy would coach at Brown and Hofstra before joining George O'Leary's staff at UCF and then going on to work to become Bill O'Brien's right hand man at both Penn State and with the Houston Texans. Unfortunately cancer ended his time on earth; but we know he is smiling down on all of us from above. Your prayers are appreciated for Coach, his wife, children and all those who loved him. God bless.
