Announcement – 2009 Assistant Revolution Coaches

The USAFL and Revolution Head Coach Matt Bishop are happy to announce the
addition of three assistants to the American Revolution. The assistants are as follows:

Denis Ryan. Denis Ryan is a long time coach in the USAFL. Denis coached the first
Revolution squad who went to Melbourne for the inaugural International Cup in 2002.
Denis led that team to a top-5 finish in 2002. Prior to the inaugural Cup, Denis was an
assistant Revolution Coach on the 2001 Atlantic Alliance Cup. From 1998 to 2009, in
addition to playing for the Eagles, Denis has held various coaching positions with the
Baltimore-Washington Eagles. During this time Baltimore has become one of the
strongest clubs in the USAFL. Beginning in 2003, Denis developed and implemented the
USFootyKids program for introducing American students to Australian Football, which
continues today. Further, Denis has developed and implemented Ausball, a recreational
co-ed version of the game which has grown to several clubs throughout the USAFL.
Denis is a Level 2 qualified Coach, and will cover the east region of the United States in
conjunction with Aaron Tyndall. Denis will focus on coaching the Revolution backline
players and assist with player development. Coach Bishop is looking forward to
channeling Denis' significant experience within the USAFL.

Jason Becker. Jason Becker began playing footy with the Milwaukee Bombers in 1999.
In 2000, he became the center-half-forward for the American Revolution, where he
played for three years, representing the USA in 10 international matches. In Melbourne in
2002, Jason kicked the first ever goal in International Cup history. During his career with
the Bombers, Jason's on and off field leadership helped the team grow. With the
Bombers, he played in USAFL Grand Finals in Divisions III, II and I. Jason is currently
the Head Coach of the Minnesota Freeze, a team that won the USAFL Division III title in
2005 while playing in their first tournament as a full squad. Only a year later, the Freeze
finished the season as Division II runners-up a year after that took home the Division II
flag. Jason will have responsibility for the central region of the United States. Jason will
also focus on coaching the Revolution forwards. Jason has been an assistant Revolution
coach since 2006 and was an assistant coach during the Revolution's 2008 International
Cup campaign. Jason brings significant knowledge regarding many of the Revolution's
players from the 2008 campaign, many of which will be leaders for the next three years.
Coach Bishop will be counting on Jason's international experience, both as a coach and a
player.

Aaron Tyndall ("AT"). Aaron Tyndall, otherwise know as "AT", has been with the
Baltimore-Washington Eagles as a player and coach since 2007. AT has had significant
influence on the Eagles rise to their current #1 ranked position in the USAFL. As a
player in 2007, AT led the Eagles to a third (3rd) place finish in the 2007 national in
Louisville. Building on that success, AT took over as head coach in 2008 and lead the
Baltimore-Washington Eagles to a runner-up finish at the 2009 USAFL Nationals in
Colorado Springs. No stranger to winning, as a player, AT played over 150 games in
AFL Canberra, winning several senior premierships. AT will have responsibility for the
Eastern region of the United State along with Denis Ryan. Aaron is able to build
fantastic rapport with all levels of playing personnel. This ability will be crucial in AT's
role as coach of the Revolution midfield, and it is expected that AT will
provide Revolution midfielders with insight into how midfields excel in today's game.
Coach Bishop is excited to have USAFL coach with such a track record of developing
top American players on the squad.

Additional Personnel. Coach Bishop is also happy to announce the continued
involvement of the following support personnel.

Head Trainer – Steve Budrick (Boston Demons). Steve selflessly volunteers his time
with the Revolution Squad and has been involved with the team since 2002. Steve has
been to all three (3) international cups as head trainer of the Revolution. His contribution
continues to be invaluable.

Managers – BJ Gambaro and Matt Jagger. Both BJ and Matt have a longstanding
history with the Revolution as players and support staff, and will continue to work with
the Revolution Coaches to build a successful Revolution program. BJ, a former Revo
ruckman, and current captain of the reigning MAAFL premier Chicago United, has
played for several USAFL squads including St. Louis, Atlanta and Philadelphia. Matt, a
former Revo fullback and current resident of Indianapolis, helped the St. Louis Blues to
back-to-back MAAFL premierships in 2003 and 2004
