Florence High Hires New Freshman Football Coach


Pending Governing Board approval, Florence High School Football would like to welcome the new Head Freshman Football Coach for 2020, Robert Holcombe. Coach Holcombe comes to Florence High School with a wealth of knowledge of the game of football. His tremendous resume includes many  accomplishments including all-time leading rusher, Super Bowl Champion, and former college football coach. 

Coach Holcombe holds the record as the All-Time Leading Rusher at the University of Illinois. He was then drafted in the 2nd round of the 1998 NFL draft by the then St. Louis Rams. With the Rams, Coach Holcombe was able to go to play 2 Super Bowls and won a Super Bowl in 2000. After 4 years with the Rams, Coach Holcombe continued his playing career with 2 seasons with the Tennessee Titans and eventually retired with the Kansas City Chiefs.

After his great career in the NFL as a player, Coach Holcombe had several stints as an intern Running backs coach with the New Orleans Saints and the Washington Redskins. His coaching career took him to Austin College in Sherman, Texas. After one season coaching running backs in college, Coach Holcombe
entered the business world for the last 7 years but the passion to coach and see young men develop both on and off the field have called him back to the coaching ranks.

"Welcome Coach Holcombe to the Florence Unified family. I am certain that the Freshman team will excel with Coach Holcombe's level of expertise, knowledge and extensive background in the game of football" said Superintendent Mr. Chris Knutsen. "I look forward to an exciting season when our players can safely return to the gridiron."

Coach Holcombe and his wife, Maureen will be relocating to Arizona from Houston, Texas to coach/teach at FHS. He will also be helping throughout the week with the other levels as well. Coach Holcombe is excited to be a part of Florence High School and the Florence Football program. We are blessed to have Maureen and Coach Holcombe as part of our Florence Football family. We are excited for what Coach Holcombe will bring to our football program and community.
