When hired to coach DBs at JUCO power Fort Scott.
Todd Worley enters his first season with the Greyhounds coaching the defensive backfield and helping with the scout teams.
A Columbus, Ohio, native Worley was a three-year starter at defensive end at Division III College of Wooster (Ohio). Worley graduated from Wooster in 2003 and then earned a law degree from Case Western Reserve University in 2006.
Coach Worley played and coached in the German Football League before going into coaching. He was player personnel assistant for the San Jose SaberCats in the Arena League in 2007.
Coach Worley worked with the San Francisco 49ers in player personnel and has worked with Team Arkansas of the short-lived All-American Football League.
Long story short, Brewster and Worly know football!

Columbus, Ohio native huh. Well that explains things.
LOL, Michigan football has landed players from the Columbus area.
Worly must be elite then. Michigan only takes the elite from Columbus!
#scraps.... just as the bucknuts
Oh man, hadn't seen this. At least you spelled my name right, unlike the bio!
How was it like playing in Germany? I noticed that there were lots of guys from Germany on the World roster when they played the US.
One of the coolest experiences I've ever had, to be honest. I was a few years out of college when I did that, so it was rewarding to prove to myself that I could still hang. Had a blast coaching some of the younger guys, as they were literally starting from scratch. And I got to do a ton of traveling there as well.
As for the football, it's very different. I could literally write a novel about all the funny/crazy things I witnessed there. Outside of North America, Germany contains the most talent and support for football. But even there, while there is definitely a segment of the population that loves football, it still hasn't really been embraced by mainstream society.
For example, we shared our game field with a local soccer club. I think the highest level within that club was like 4th or 5th division, so it wasn't like they were on the verge of playing for the national team. But any time it rained the night before - or morning of - one of our home games, we'd have to fight tooth and nail to not have our game moved to the practice field, because they didn't want their field torn up.
We routinely had players miss games for toothaches and other ridiculous "injuries."
We had some guys on our team that would literally smoke cigarettes on the sideline before the game.
At some point in just about every game, we'd have a player literally take off all of his equipment, quit and go home. It wasn't the same guy doing it every time - there were probably 6-7 different guys that did it. And they would all come back within a day or two.
For whatever reason, our team would dump the Gatorade cooler on our head coach after every win, even if we beat some awful team by 50.
There is no such concept as sportsmanship in blowouts there. Teams run up the score on each other like you wouldn't believe, and no one cares.
I could go on and on here. Bottom line, though, was it was a great experience that I'll never forget.
That's great stuff Todd. The dumping the gatorade on the coach after every win cracked me up.
Yeah, there were three other Americans on my team, and we all thought that was hilarious.
