SAN ANTONIO -- The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) recently announced the hiring of Larry Kennan as head coach of the UIW football program.

Kennan is a well-respected, experienced coach who has worked with all-pro quarterbacks, coached at all levels, and has a Super Bowl ring. His hiring was announced by UIW Athletic Director Mark Papich, who said Kennan will start immediately and will be in search of top-level talent for the Cardinals, who recently made known their intentions to transition into the NCAA’s Division I.

“In support of Dr. (Louis J. Jr.) Agnese and the university’s vision of expanding our brand, Larry Kennan provides the experience we need to continue that move,” Papich said. “He gives Incarnate Word name recognition through his ability to reach into the NFL as well as the collegiate ranks for assistance with our fund-raising efforts and in taking our football program forward.”

Kennan has coaching experience with seven professional teams, six in the NFL and one in the former World Football League. He has twice been a champion, once as quarterbacks coach with the Super Bowl-winning Los Angeles Raiders, and once as head coach of the London Monarchs of the WFL.

In the professional ranks, he has worked as an offensive coordinator, as quarterbacks coach, as a wide receivers coach, and as a tight ends coach. At the collegiate level, he worked three years as head coach at Lamar University. He also has college experience as an offensive coordinator at SMU and Nevada-Las Vegas. He also was the tight ends coach at Colorado.

Most recently, and for the last 13 years, Kennan has been executive director of the NFL Coaches Association based in Washington, D.C. During those years, he kept his hand in coaching by working with and training quarterbacks such as Drew Bledsoe and Jeff Hostetler. Along the way, his quarterback client list has included Eli Manning, Tony Romo, and Drew Brees.
