Gary Jeffries (born May 13, 1946 in Toronto, Ontario[1]) is the current head coach for Wilfrid Laurier University's football team, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks.[2] He has served as the team's head coach since 2002, winning the CIS Coach of the Year award in 2003 and a Vanier Cup championship in 2005. Collegiately, he played CIAU football for the Guelph Gryphons and Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks.

Coaching career

Jeffries began his coaching career in 1972 as the linebackers coach and defensive line coach for the Golden Hawks until his promotion to defensive coordinator in 1981. While serving as the defensive coordinator until 1988, he also served as the Golden Hawks women's basketball coach from 1984-1988. He became the men's basketball coach in 1989, holding that position until 1996, while also resigning from his football duties. In 1994, he re-joined the football team as their defensive coordinator and held that position until 2002, when he became the team's interim head coach midway through the season. He won the school's second ever Vanier Cup championship in 2005 against the Saskatchewan Huskies.
