W.Va. Christian school names Hostetler new coach

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Former NFL quarterback Jeff Hostetler has his first official coaching gig: He's taking over at Morgantown's Trinity Christian School.

Hostetler led the New York Giants to a Super Bowl victory in 1991, and quarterbacked for the Mountaineers at West Virginia University.

Now he's taking on a team that's moving from six-on-six to traditional 11-man football. Trinity will field a junior varsity team this year and aims to have a varsity team in 2014.

Until now, Hostetler has coached only as a volunteer assistant at University High.

He says he'll be all about hustle and positive reinforcement when it comes to the Warriors.

The Dominion Post ( says his son, Justin Hostetler, will serve as assistant head coach.

Trinity Superintendent Ken Howard won't say how much the coaches will be paid.
