Danish Federation holding coaching clinics featuring Jeff Reinebold

The Danish American Football Federation, DAFF (Dansk Amerikansk Fodbold Forbund), is holding a pair of coaching clinics featuring well known coach and football personality, Jeff Reinebold.

Reinebold, who is stationed in London, England with Sky Sports before heading back to North America for Super Bowl LII, is currently the special teams coach for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. He is also a well known name in European football circles with a reputation as an excellent speaker.

The well-traveled coach and speaker will be at the Herlev club offices January 25 from 6:30 to 9:30p and on January 26 at the Ceres Arena in Aarhus from 6:30 to 9:30p.

Coaches from other countries wishing to attend should send an email to Thomas Brygmann[email protected].

Reinebold’s football journey has taken him across the CFL and to Europe and major US colleges.

In the Canadian Football League he has coached with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (current team), Montreal AlouettesEdmonton Eskimos, Las Vegas Posse, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the B.C. Lions. He gave up a lucrative career with NFL Europe to take a huge pay cut and man the sidelines as a graduate assistant with the University of Hawaii and then moved on to SMU (Southern Methodist University). He was named one of the finest recruiters in college football.

Reinebold’s European adventure began in 1996 when he was a coach of the Rhein Fire and Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe. After coaching stops in both the CFL, NFL Europe again and the NCAA, he returned to NFL Europe in 2004 as senior manager of international player development.

While in Europe, 11 of the defensive backs he coached found themselves on active NFL rosters. Three of his defensive linemen at Hawaii were drafted in the NFL.

Currently,  he is based in London, England until early February, doing the TV color commentary on NFL games and the Super Bowl for Skysports, and co-hosting the biggest NFL podcast outside of North America – Inside The Huddle.

He is part of a two man team with Neil Reynolds, also a former NFL Europe executive, on the show. It airs at least once a week from London, year round, so over the years he has had to scramble to make it work. He has even handled it from the beaches of Costa Rica once on a surf vacation.
