Father and Son Team Up as Gryphon Football Coaches

Coach Sheahan and Coach Sheahan have reunited on the staff of the Guelph Gryphons football team.

Head coach Ryan Sheahan has been joined on the squad by his father, Pat Sheahan, who was appointed this year as the Gryphons offensive line coach and an offensive assistant.

Father and son were last fellow coaches in 2014 with the Queen’s Gaels at Queen’s University, where Pat spent 19 seasons as head coach.

“It’s a great feeling,” Ryan says. “I looked at it through two different lenses and the most important one is that I think we brought on one of the best coaches to join our staff and our team.”

Both father and son also coached the University of Calgary Dinos more recently; Pat replaced Ryan as offensive coordinator in Calgary after Ryan became U of G’s head coach.
