ABOUT COACH JEFF STEINBERG

Coach Steinberg has been the Head Football Coach at Corona Santiago since 2009.  He became the 3rd Head Coach in the history of the school following successful stints at A.B. Miller High School in Fontana, CA and Burroughs High School in Ridgecrest, CA.

At each of his schools Coach Steinberg implemented a hurry up no huddle spread offense that saw tremendous results.  Jeff has been able to revitalize 3 different programs to lead them to 11 playoff appearances.  Additionally Coach Steinberg’s teams have earned 5 league titles, 3 quarter final appearances (01, 07, 08), a semi final appearance (04), a California Interscholastic Federation Final in 2003 and a California Interscholastic Federation Championship in 2005.

While at Burroughs Coach Steinberg turned around a struggling program and led them to 6 straight playoff appearances, 4 league titles, a CIF Final in 2003 and a CIF Championship in 2005.  During the 2005 season Jeff became the winningest football coach in the history of Burroughs High School during his tenure.  He had the opportunity to coach Parade All American Anthony Celestine who broke the state record for receiving in 2003 (2053 Yards), State Passing Leader, Quarterback Karsten Sween in 2004 (4,345 yards passing/ 46 TD passes/ 7 INT’s) and Southern Section Receiving Leader Hayo Carpenter in 2005 (111 Receptions, 1780 Yards).  Jeff was honored as the Desert Sky League Coach of the Year in 2003 & 2005.  He was CIF Southern Section Coach of the Year in 2005.  Additionally, he was the Sierra Sands Unified School District Employee of the Year at Burroughs for the 2003/04 school year.  During 2005 Coach Steinberg was honored by the Ridgecrest Chamber of Commerce as Volunteer of the Year primarily for his efforts in establishing a peer mentor program called the Burro Buddies (as featured in the L.A. Times on April 10/05).

Following Burroughs High School a similar program of excellence on and off the field was implemented at A.B. Miller High School.  Jeff implemented his spread no huddle offense at A.B. Miller High School which saw the Rebels average over 400 yards of offense per game & 36 points per game during the 2007 season.  Quarterback A.J. Springer broke every passing record at the school & led the county in several categories namely total yards per game (330) and passing percentage (70%).  He was among the top 5 in the state for total yards offense.  During the 2008 season the Rebels had the most wins in the history of the school going 11-1

During Coach Steinberg’s 1st 4 seasons at Santiago High School he was able to assist over 20 athletes in gaining athletic scholarships in both NCAA & NAIA schools across the country.  In 2011 Jeff Steinberg went over the century mark for career wins as a head coach in the state of California (110-62 career record).

Coach Steinberg and his wife Jocelyn have 3 daughters and a son.

END OF SEASON PROGRAM EVALUATION

Staying with the theme of forms to evaluate your program, here is another one that I’ve used quite often.  This form is in the coaching manual that I have for sale.  I’ve used this form in seven of my eight years as a Head Coach.  The one year I didn’t use this form is when we transfered to doing them online via Survey Monkey.  The great thing about doing an online survey is that you get instant results.  The tough thing is that you are limited to 10 questions for free, then you pay.  I probably won’t do the online version again because of that limitation.

A few reasons I think a survey of your players like this important:

1.  Allows them to have a voice in the program.  Most of us coaches think and say “it’s your program, I’ve got next year.”  But do you really mean that?  Is it really the kids program?  Or are you the egomaniac center of it?  I think that it goes a long way to give the kids a voice in the program.  It doesn’t mean you cater to them, it doesn’t mean that if they say “we don’t like running” that you stop running!  But it does let them know that you care about them as a person, and as a football player.

It's your players program, allow them to have a say. This was in 2003, our team took a trip to Hawaii for a game v. Baldwin High School on Maui.

2.  Sometimes the kids have some great ideas!  And these great ideas can make your program better.  Listen, we don’t know it all. We may think we do, but we don’t.  As soon as we stop listening to the kids we coach, we fail.  I’ve had some really great responses doing these surveys with my teams.  Sometimes we think something is working, but it is not, you are missing the boat.

One example is in pregame meals.  Several years ago, it was the tradition for the school I was at to go to Sizzler restaurant for our pregame meals.  Sizzler is a steak house, with salad bar.  We got a great deal at one of the places in town because the owners daughter went to our school.  Well, one year, a bunch of the kids wrote that they hated going there.  It had become an old hat.  I never knew that.  For whatever reason, none of my captains ever said anything, but when this hit my radar, and I brought it to my Player Committee, they all started laughing and said “yeah, we hate that place Coach.”

Well, maybe it seems like a small thing to you, but to me this was big.  Why make the kids go to a restaurant before the game that they don’t want to be at?  Plus the kids said that they steak just didn’t digest quickly enough.  I didn’t want ANYTHING to be a distraction before the game.  I wanted them to enjoy where we were at.  So, I made a change for the next season and let the kids choose a place.  They were so excited!!  You would have thought I took away conditioning for the entire year.  So, I gained their trust and confidence by this decision to let them choose.  It just wasn’t a battle I really cared about!  A little thing, but the players thought it was huge!  I never would have known that if not for the survey.

Another year, the kids told me we weren’t conditioning enough!!  Can you imagine that?  Again, this is something the kids would never come right out and say. But something like 40% of them thought we weren’t conditioning enough, and it was negatively impacting us during games.  I thought we were doing a fine job.  My coaching staff was blown away by this.  But we increased conditioning the next year.

Another Hawaii picture! Players at a luau the night after our game.

3. Confirms that you are doing things right.  It’s always nice to hear the kids say “Coach, you are doing everything right, don’t change a thing with this, or this, or this.”  It’s not that we need a pat on the back, but you want to make sure you are on target. That you are reaching them and teaching them.  So, that’s another reason I like to do these surveys.

Some kids will write one word, some will write entire paragraphs over the course of a few days.

Again, I encourage you to use this type of survey, or a survey of some sort.  If you are, I would love to see what you are using.  Email me at coach478@gmail.com

OUTSIDE THE LINES MANUAL – Bolster your administrative and organizational portfolio

I’ve created a coaching manual that includes 100 pages of the administrative and organizational essentials for every head coach.

I’ve titled it the “Outside The Lines Manual” because it is more about the off the field administrative details of the job than the x’s and o’s of the game.  It’s all about the things “outside of the lines” which have a dramatic effect on the what happens between the lines!

Are you a coach who is very strong with your “between the lines” knowledge and ability yet struggle with having the time and desire to organize and effectively communicate the little things to your players, parents, boosters, etc.?  Or do you just want to see what someone else is doing in many aspects of organizational management?

I’ve purchased manuals like this before from coaches at clinics.  The bad part about that is you have to still go and type out anything you want to use from that manual.  With my Outside The Lines Manual, I will send you a USB Thumb Drive with every document on it so that you have a digital copy that you can edit and personalize for your program!  The framework is done. Just add your logo, information, player’s names, etc.

I’ve been a Head Coach for 8 years.  This manual has been created over hundreds of hours over the last 8 years.  My strengths are in the areas of organizational management and administration.  I have experience as an Athletic Director managing the many moving parts of a high school athletic department, as well as being a head football coach.  I’ve earned my Masters in Athletic Administration and am a Certified Athletic Administrator.

I’ve put together this 100 page manual for coaches who are new to the head coaching job, or coaches who want to bolster their portfolio of documents.

Included in the “Outside The Lines Manual” are the following documents:
