At the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy, we offer our athletes the chance to learn from the world’s most experienced coaching staff. The entire coaching staff has a combined 200+ years of NFL exposure, which may be an overwhelming figure to digest.


Brian Pariani, Former NFL Coach, is one of the coaches for the Academy Series. Brian coached in the NFL for 27 years, collecting four Super Bowl rings, three with the 49ers and one with the Denver Broncos. He spent the majority of his NFL time working with tight ends.


Brian is now using his experience and knowledge to help young athletes train on and off the field. He acts as an advisor for the Sports VTS QBSim Lab, the virtual reality training system for quarterbacks. The simulation enables a quarterback to train without risk of injury and enhance the current training regime of classroom instruction, playbook study, drills and seven-on-seven scrimmages.


Brian will be taking his talents to the road, traveling to the international academy series in the Netherlands, France and Mexico to train athletes that are not on the radar of U.S. scouts and recruiters yet. “As a former NFL coach, we want to try to expand the game. It’s great to travel to different countries and see what kind of players are here athletically so we can try to teach them and grow the game.”
