Raiders appoint Michael Fox as Defensive Coordinator

Raiders appoint Michael Fox as Defensive Coordinator

The Knottingley Raiders committee are please to announce the appointment of Michael Fox as our Defensive Coordinator. After a 30+ year love affair with american football, after first seeing Manchester Spartans play ball in 1984, Michael answered the call for our search for a DC.

Having seen Knottingley play in their debut season in BAFA National Leagues, Michael was keen to work with the club and offered his services on a short-term trial basis. Having impressed both players and coaches alike, Michael has accepted the position of DC and is keen to make an impact this year in the NFC 2 South.

We look forward to watching our defense develop under his guidance.
