Tampa, FL-- Jesuit HS named Matt Thompson as the school's 20th head football coach.

Thompson had been Armwood HS's defensive coordinator for the past 10 seaons.  He's a native of Brandon, and a USF graduate.

Jesuit Athletic Director Terry Rupp praised Thompson's prep coaching experience.

"Matt is both a coach's and a player's coach,"  said Rupp.  "Not only is he highly respected in the local coaching community, but he's also earned the respect and trust of his players."

As a Bay Area native, Thompson is well aware of Jesuit's 91-year football history.

"Yea, I want to be part of that," said Thompson.   "It's been a dream... This is the job, this is it... There's no looking around anywhere else... This is where I want to be."

Matt Thompson also served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1986-1991.
