Bryan Stinespring (born October 12, 1963) is the offensive line coach and run game coordinator for the James Madison Dukes football team in Harrisonburg, Virginia. He was previously the tight ends coach (1993–1997, 2006–2015) and recruiting coordinator for the Virginia Tech Hokies football program. He was a full-time member of head coach Frank Beamer's staff from 1993-2015. Throughout his tenure in Blacksburg, Stinespring held a number of other positions including offensive line coach (1993–2005), recruiting coordinator (1994–2001), assistant head coach (2001) and offensive coordinator (2002–2012).[1]

Following Beamer's retirement at the end of the 2015 season, Stinespring joined the staff at his alma mater James Madison where he currently serves as tight ends coach and run-game coordinator. [2]

Criticism[edit]

Stinespring had faced criticism from the fans[3] and a player[4] for offensive output during his time as offensive coordinator, which compares poorly with that of his predecessors under Frank Beamer.[3]

In 2008, sports columnist Norm Wood has commented that Stinespring's offensive production in recent years has been "abysmal", and that he heard fans chanting "Fire Stinespring" before one home game.[5]

While Stinespring faced criticism for offensive production, he has also been praised for his abilities as a recruiter.[4][5] Players have also expressed their appreciation for Stinespring as a personal coach, and for his ability to recruit talented new players to the franchise.[4]
