Former NFL Player Named Gorman Interim Football Coach

Gorman alumni and former NFL player George Cumby has been named Interim Head Football Coach for the Bishop T. K. Gorman Catholic School 2006 football season.  The move follows the resignation of seven-year coach John Nache. 

Cumby returns to Gorman after seven years in the NFL playing inside linebacker for both the Green bay Packers and the Buffalo Bills.  More recently Cumby has worked as a professional speaker for Sports World Ministry and as Urban Director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Houston, Texas.

Citing his strong Christian background as well as his extensive football experience, Gorman Athletic Director Mary Schick indicated, "Cumby, as a Gorman alumni, is a strong fit for the school's program.  He has worked well with youth and is a man of faith"

Cumby's new role follows the resignation this week of Coach John Nasche, who will continue to assist in the Gorman athletic program.  Nasche, who leaves the Gorman program with a win-loss record of 40-38, cited the need to spend time with his new-born son and his strong personal desire to pursue further education as the primary reasons for his move. 

Nasche has led the Crusaders to two football district championships, two regional qualifiers and four playoff teams in his tenure at the helm. Ten Gorman players under his direction have gone on to play collegiate football.

Cumby graduated from Gorman in 1975 to play football for the University of Oklahoma before moving into the pros in 1980.

Gorman has offered football as a varsity sport for forty-seven years, the longest standing private school football program in Smith County.
