Thursday, February 8, 2018 - The Sacramento Australian Football Club is starting the search for both the Suns Head Coach and the Lady Suns Head Coach for the 2018 season. With the retirement of long term Suns Head Coach, Matt Bishop, and the relocation of last year's Lady Suns Head Coach, Andy Jacobs, both teams are excited to find new leadership for the 2018 United States Australian Football League (USAFL) representative season.
The men and women are scheduled to compete in the Western Region Tournament July 28, 2018 in Davis, California, Stumptown Throwdown August 25, 2018 in Portland Oregon and the National Tournament October 13 & 14 - Racine, Wisconsin; as well as other USAFL sanctioned matches yet to be confirmed. Both teams practice weekly at local Sacramento area parks from May to early October on Tuesday evenings. This is a volunteer position, and the coach will be responsible to pay the same travel expenses as the players.
