JB: ..... but a local boy keeps climbing the coaching ladder. Darrell Bevell who played HS ball at Chaperell HS has joined Urban Meyers staff as the OC of the Jacksonville Jags. Bevell was very lightly recruited out of HS but committed to NAU and redshirted as a frosh before going on a 2 year LDS mission to Ohio. Upon returning, his former position coach (Brent Childress) had been hired at Wisconsin on Barry Alverez's staff and invited him to walkon. Bevell was listed as the sixth or seventh QB on the roster at the start of fall practices but ended up starting by midseason and started at Wisky for four years. He was not drafted by the NFL so he went into coaching as a Grad Assistant at Iowa State. He has been a coach for the Green Bay Packers And the OC for the Minn Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and the Detroit lions. His dad was a longtime AZ HS coach and a couple of brothers were very good AZ HS players. Thought that some would like to know that he started out here in the PHX area.
