Landmark Christian School is pleased to announce a new head coach and staff addition to the football program. Nationally known and respected for their success in coaching, playing, building programs, developing athletes and investing in young men, Mike Sherrard and Bill Redell will join a talented team of Landmark coaches in leading the War Eagles in 2019 and building a highly attractive program that develops godly character, talent, and launches athletes to the next level.

Mike Sherrard joins the Landmark family as Varsity Football Head Coach. Coach Sherrard’s successful high school coaching career spans a decade and includes titles of Assistant Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, and Wide Receivers coach. He began on the west coast in 2010 on the offensive staff at nationally recognized Oaks Christian High School and left with an overall winning record of 43-15. Other high school coaching stints included Newbury Park High School, Brentwood School, Bishop Alemany and Beverly Hills High. His former players, Baffour Osei (Vanderbilt) and Michael Pittman (USC), speak of how Sherrard led by example and was invested in their lives, on and off the field. “Coach Sherrard is a great coach and teacher, and one of the best to play receiver. He developed me into the player that I am today and taught me patience and hard work, and to always perfect my craft. Wherever he goes he makes his players better,” says Pittman.

Sherrard was a walk-on at UCLA, earning both a starting position and a full scholarship by his sophomore year. Three Rose Bowl wins and setting UCLA receiving records highlight his college football career. As an NCAA All-American, the Dallas Cowboys selected Sherrard in the first round of the 1986 NFL Draft. His 11- year NFL career is marked by touchdown passes from Joe Montana, Steve Young, and John Elway and a historic Super Bowl victory on a San Francisco 49ers team that included Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Ronnie Lott. Sherrard worked with Fox Sports Net as a television color commentator and also cohosted “The Sports Zone” on ABC, Los Angeles for seven seasons. Sherrard boasts an impressive athletic pedigree as his father played college basketball and semipro baseball, and his mother was a member of the 1964 US Summer Olympic Track and Field Team. Sherrard is excited about the challenge of bringing his wisdom and experience to building the program at Landmark.

Sherrard says, “I'm excited about the opportunity to partner with the Landmark community to develop young Christian men who will lead and impact the world. Landmark has an excellent academic reputation and we will have high standards on the football field, too. There is no place I'd rather be to mentor and lead the football program."

Bill Redell will serve on the coaching staff as Strategic Advisor and Head of College Recruitment. Redell has a plethora of football knowledge and experience having played and coached at the high school, college and professional levels. As a player, Redell played quarterback, safety, and kicker. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2001 for being known as one of college football’s last Triple Threats (a player who plays offense, defense, and special teams). As a coach, Redell amassed seven CIF Championship titles in California and placed 80 players into Division 1 football programs. Redell will be inviting additional high-profile coaches to join the Landmark staff and will be essential in helping Landmark Football return to its former glory while developing young men to compete at the next level. Sherrard and Redell have created a lot of excitement ahead of their arrival at Landmark. Head of School Jason McMaster stated, “Head Coach Mike Sherrard and Bill Redell are the finest coaches with which I have had the privilege of working; and I am completely confident that with this coaching staff, area football players will want to be at Landmark to be developed.”
