Former Chiefs Player Gets a Head Coaching Gig

Remember Eddie Eviston?

It's okay - Neither do I. He attended training camp with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2004 but ended up with a career in NFL Europe and an indoor football league.

He was recently named head coach of Newport Central Catholic high school.

Apparently, he was a heck of a college player. Check out this entry from his 2007 induction into the Georgetown College Athletics Hall of Fame:

Eddie Eviston, class of 2001, was "Mr. Everything" during one of the most successful periods in Georgetown College Football history. While Eddie was at Georgetown the Tigers were the 2000 and 2001 National Champions. He was named the NAIA Player of the Year an unprecendented three years in a row (1999, 2000, 2001). Eviston finished his career with a record of 41-1 as a starter, losing only in the national championship game his sophomore year. His jersey is one of only two to be retired in football.

Geez. NAIA player of the year three years in a row?

Former Chiefs GM Carl Peterson took a shot on him and, judging by this quick bio, it was the right move to take a shot.
