Football is a game that teaches you lessons you can use for the rest of your life. All of our coaches come with years of life experiences and football knowledge that can teach good values to all athletes.

At the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy, we offer our athletes the most elite training with 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.

Chuck Bresnahan, Former NFL Coach, is one of the leaders for the Academy Series. Chuck has experience in college and the NFL for over 26 years, 15 of those years he was coaching in the league. Throughout his NFL career he coached for the Cleveland, Browns, Oakland Raiders, Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Bengals. At the Academy, Bresnahan works with athletes focused on defense. “Sports, in general, teaches you how to win and lose and you carry that into life. I tell everybody I speak to that whenever I have tragedy in my life or I have success in my life, I find myself falling back on two things — how the game of football has taught me how to handle success and adversity, but also the discipline of being in the military. The organizational skills, the chain of command, all those types of things, have really helped develop me who I am as a person, not just as a coach.”

Chuck 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.
