MSD & Coral Springs Welcome New Football Coaches

Local football fans always have one date on the calendar circled at the start of the high school football season. The annual Pig Bowl game pits the Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) Eagles against the Colts from Coral Springs High School. 

While the uniforms will remain the same, this year’s game will have a very different look than years past. Both schools are welcoming new head football coaches. Eddie Brown will take over coaching duties at Coral Springs, while Keith Hindsley will lead the Eagles.

Hindsley takes over coaching MSD coaching duties from Quentin Short, who left to become the head coach at Piper High School.

A native of South Florida, Hindsley played college football at the University of Louisiana Monroe before getting into coaching at 26 and taking American Heritage in Delray to the State Championship in 2015.

“I think it was a community base in Parkland that I enjoyed,” Hindsley said. “The consistency of the kids is what really put me interested and getting back on the map. The past head coach did such a good job of keeping it together. I’m really excited to get rolling.”

Hindsley takes over a program that has seen some of its best seasons over the past four years, culminating with the Eagle’s first playoff victory in 14 years, while Brown will set out to rebuild the Colts football program, which has not had a winning season since 2017.

Brown, who is the father of NFL superstar, Antonio Brown, has a long football career. He played college football at Louisiana Tech and became a star in the Arena Football league with the Albany/ Indiana Firebirds. He was named MVP in 1994 and then won a championship in 1996 before getting into coaching and has spent most of the past decade coaching at Boyd Anderson High School.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to become the head coach here at Coral Springs,” Eddie said.
