German Football League: Stuttgart Scorpions sign Jeff Scurran as new HC

The Stuttgart Scorpions of the German Football League have signed veteran Jeff Scurran as their head coach for the 2021 season.

Scurran spent part of the 2019 season with the Allgäu Comets but returned home due to differences with management.

His record as a high school and college coach is a remarkable 302-90-2. He has been named Coach-of-the-Year 15 times in four states (district level), state All-Star Coach four times, won 18 league championships and engineered turnaround seasons multiple times. His Sabino High School (Arizona) teams (1989-1999) made five appearance in the state championship game in 10 years and reached the state semifinals nine out of those 10 years. In 1998-1999, they won 23 consecutive games.

He was selected as the national Coach-of-the-Year by the NFL-SCA in 2007 for taking the Santa Rita Eagles in Tucson from 0-10 to 11-2, the biggest turnaround in state history.

Scurran has also coached Team Stars and Stripes, USA in Tokyo, Paris, Munich, Turin and Rome. Scurran has spoken in over 1000 high schools throughout the United States on athletic development, championship decision making, and motivation. He has been a featured clinician at over 500 university and nationally sponsored “Coaching Clinics” on various elements of strategy and athletic preparation.

Although he has spent most of his 45 year career coaching high school and college football he has coached in Europe. In 2012, Scurran took over a Firenze Guelfi team that had been winless in 2012 in Diviion II in Italy, and guided them to the national semifinals with a 10-2 record.
