Sierra College named Ben Noonan as its new football coach.
Noonam, a Northern California native with years of coaching experience at various levels, replaces the recently retired Jeff Tisdel, who guided the Wolverines to national prominence in his 12-year run, including a 37-game winning streak and bowl game success.
Noonan spent the last four seasons as offensive coordinator for Citrus College in Southern California, where his quarterbacks set myriad school records.
His resume also includes one year each as an offensive graduate assistant at Baylor, two seasons as co-offensive coordinator at West Texas A&M and two as an offensive assistant at Texas A&M Kingsville.
Noonan was born in Santa Rosa, played football at San Rosa Junior College and Bemidji State University in Minnesota, earning a BA in English. He started his coaching career as the passing-game coordinator at Mendocino College in 2000.
Noonan will also teach physical education at Sierra.
