Sun Valley, Calif. – Village Christian School is proud to announce
the hiring of Richard Broussard as its new Director of Football.
Broussard led Burbank High School to its first CIF-Southern Section championship
game appearance in school history in 2016, later earning Area Coach of
the Year honors from the Burbank Leader/Glendale News-Press. He has 11
years of coaching experience, including coaching at the collegiate level
this past year at Pasadena City College.
“I’m truly blessed and honored to be named the Director of
Football at Village Christian School,” Broussard said. “I
am excited to get to work and to embark on the F.E.A.T.T. (Faith, Effort,
Attitude, Toughness, Togetherness) of restoring Crusader football. I want
to restore traditions and a sense of pride for VCS football. We will be
overly prepared and infectiously energized in all aspects of our lives.
Faith, academics, family, and football will be our guiding priorities
as we prepare the student-athletes of Village Christian for future success.”
In 2017, VCS featured a strong Middle School football team, but due to
low turnout, was unable to field a varsity team. Broussard and his staff,
together with school administration, are optimistic they will build a
strong High School program in 2018 and beyond.
Said Village Christian Head of School Tom Konjoyan: “We are thrilled
to have Coach Broussard at the helm to return VCS Football to its status
as a championship-caliber program that focuses on helping student athletes
thrive in the classroom, on the field, and in their faith development.”
As Director of Football and Assistant Athletic Director, Broussard will
oversee the Middle and High School football programs, as well as support
the overall athletic program at VCS. He earned his Teaching Credential
from National University and is currently completing his Master’s
Degree in Kinesiology at California Baptist University.
A former player at Missouri Valley College, Broussard comes from a distinguished
football family. His brother, Steve Broussard, played in the NFL for eight
seasons and has coached for several PAC-12 programs, including UCLA.
“Coach Broussard is a high-energy coach who inspires a love for the
game, motivates students to play at a high level, and cares deeply about
his players,” said VCS Athletic Director Kevin Aust. “His
programs are known for their integrity, values, commitment, hard work,
and positive and fun atmosphere. Coach Broussard is well-respected in
the local football community, and I am confident he is a great fit for
the mission of VCS.”
