North Carolina native Jermod Mapp returned to West Hills College Coalinga as the defensive coordinator in July of 2018. His previous experience at WHCC included stints in 2009 (special teams coordinator/defensive backs) and 2015 (defensive backs/video coordinator).
For the past two seasons (2016-2017), Mapp was the defensive coordinator at Monterey Peninsula College - a formidable rival for WHCC in the American Division. In fact, Mapp has been part of the last three Golden League championship programs: 2015 at WHCC, and 2016 & 2017 at MPC.
At MPC, Mapp helped build one of the state's top defensive units. He was a key member of the Lobos' coaching staff - working in virtually every facet, including recruiting, academic monitoring, fundraising, and game planning.
Mapp's first defensive coordinator position came at the prep level, during the 2014 season at Knightdale High School in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In 2013, he was special teams coordinator/defensive backs coach at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania.
Mapp spent three seasons (2010-12) at Shaw University in North Carolina as special teams coordinator/video coordinator/defensive backs coach.
