In their first season in Indianapolis, head coach Frank Reich, left, and offensive coordinator and Jamestown native Nick Sirianni have guided the Colts into the playoffs.,Father Fran, a member of the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame, coached Southwestern High School from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s; brother Mike is the head coach at Washington & Jefferson College where he has compiled one of the best winning percentages in the NCAA; and brother Jay coached Southwestern to a pair of New York State Public High School Athletic Association championships in 2008 and 2009.,Once the youngest Sirianni arrived at the University of Mount Union, he played for Larry Kehres, who guided the Purple Raiders to 11 national championships in his career.,Upon his graduation, Sirianni began his climb up the coaching ranks with stops at Mount Union, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the Kansas Chiefs and the San Diego/Los Angeles Chargers, before joining Reich’s staff in Indianapolis last February.,“One of the reasons I’m in the position I’m in now is because of the successful coaches I’ve been around, starting with growing up in a coach’s house, learning how to coach with my brothers, and then, obviously, playing for the most successful coach in NCAA football history in Larry Kehres,” he told The Post-Journal last October.

From All-Ireland finals to All-Ireland Leagues, St Patrick's Day to St Patrick's Athletic, David Mahedy has seen it all.,Limerick beat everyone to win the league and almost beat Real Madrid at home; Mahedy's methods were already attracting attention.,Ryan had succeeded the popular Phil Bennis; Ballybrown and Patrickswell weren't exactly bedfellows and, initially, influential figures like Ciaran Carey and Gary Kirby were suspicious of Mahedy's colourful, cosmopolitan background.,And so they did, all winter of '95; the Maguire's Field in UL whereon he now gazes was to the Limerick hurlers what the Crusheen hill was to Clare.,We lost three in a row once but the players didn't understand we were still on target to win the league," Mahedy says.
