Assistant coach Jamal Danley is in his second season with the Falcons. Danley coaches offensive line and has responsibilities with special teams, including field goals.
Last season, the Falcons rushed for 1,412 yards (4.2 ypc) and 25 touchdowns, ranking among the top offensive units in the Northern California Football Conference. Behind his offensive line, the Falcons had the state's top-scoring quarterback (Myron Norfleet) with 15 TDs. The team ranked among the CCCAA's Top 25 by allowing only 20 sacks on the season.
Danley also coached a converted tight end, Apefai Taifane, to the most-decorated season in the history of WHCC by an offensive lineman. Taifane was selected First Team All-Golden Coast, First Team All-State, and First Team All-American. He was the first player in school history to also be selected California and National Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Taifane, who played all five positions (mostly at center), transferred on scholarship to Cal Poly.
Also in 2017, Danley coached offensive tackle James Ehoff, who was an honorable mention All-GCL performer. Both Taifane and Ehoff are honor roll students.
Danley recruited twice as many lineman as he inherited his first season, quickly making a name for himself on the West Coast.
Prior to coming to West Hills College Coalinga, Danley was an assistant coach at Mississippi Delta Community College. His duties included offensive line coach, strength and conditioning coach, and co-offensive coordinator.
Danley was a stellar offensive lineman at two national powerhouse programs – East Mississippi Community College and the University of Oklahoma.
The Sooners won consecutive Big XII titles during Danley's career in Norman, posting a 22-4 record under head coach Bob Stoops. The team won the 2016 All-State Sugar Bowl – beating Auburn, 35-19 – and ended the season ranked No. 3 in the final AP Poll.
In 2015, the Sooners qualified for the College Playoffs. The team was seeded No. 4 and lost to national champion runner-up Clemson in the Orange Bowl.
At East Mississippi, Danley was an All-American offensive lineman for back-to-back state and national championship teams in 2013 and 2014. The program was a perfect 24-0 during his two-year career.
In addition to earning All-American status, Danley was voted 2014 NJCAA All-Region 23 and the team's Most Valuable Offensive Lineman. He was ESPN's No. 1 ranked junior college guard in the class of 2015.
While going to school, Danley coached football summer camps at both East Mississippi (2014) and Oklahoma (2015-2016).
Danley received his A.A. degree of arts from East Mississippi Community College in 2014, and his B.A. degree in planned programming from the University of Oklahoma in 2016.
