Fort Bend Christian Academy Revamps Football Program, Names Former NFL Player Jordan Black as Head Coach
Jordan Black will serve as Fort Bend Christian Academy’s Head Football Coach.
“Jordan is the right person to revitalize and advance our football program,” Head of School Joshua Gettys said. “I am confident in his ability to evoke positive change. He is highly disciplined and understands how to achieve a desired outcome. Coach Black will be a difference-maker at FBCA.”
Black played at the University of Notre Dame from 1998 to 2002, which culminated in a successful 10-year career in the National Football League (NFL) playing for the Chiefs, Texans, Jaguars and Redskins. During Jordan’s career in the NFL, he was elected as a Board of Player Representative in the National Football League Players Association.
Since 2013, Black has continued to be involved in football through coaching young athletes. He owns a Snap Fitness Gym and has served in different ministry roles, including weekly leadership training through Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) International and guest speaking and church consulting across the country.
The FBCA football program faced adversity during the fall of 2018 due to multiple injuries of starting players, resulting in an early end to the season. However, passionate football fans and parents believed in the importance of a strong team and coaching staff, leading FBCA to a professional like Black to rebuild the program.
“I want to build a football program that will be successful for years to come at FBCA,” Black said. “Coaching football is a ministry opportunity. Not only is it teaching a game that I love, but it is teaching young men about biblical manhood.”
