The Sioux City Bandits coaching staff works hard every year to put together a team they feel will take us to the Champions Bowl. Coaching is not just a game day thing, it's a year 'round job. Our coaching staff, led by Head Coach Erv Strohbeen, has worked together for many years - on and off the Bandits field. Coach Strohbeen has received the Coach of the Year award for two years in the Champions Indoor Football (CIF) league. That alone speaks volumes about his character and coaching skills.
Coach JD DeGeorgia and Coach John Zevenbergen know as well as Coach Strohbeen what it is like to play indoor football for the Bandits. They've both been on the field, and lived through the highs and lows, good days and bad days football players go through. They work closely with their players, their family, on and off the field to push them and help make them as successful as they want to be.
