Jed Richman joined Pendleton Heights High School as Head Football Coach in 2015. 

Prior to Pendleton Heights Coach Richman was the head football coach at Lawrence Central High School from 2013-2015. During his time as head football coach at Lawrence Central, the football program made great strides in several areas, such as:

  • Led LC’s transition into the difficult MIC athletic conference and held the #1 Strength of Regular Season Schedule in Indiana in 2013, 2014, and 2015 (according to Jeff Sagarin).

  • Implemented a study table program, resulting in an increase in the team GPA from below a 2.0 in 2013 to a 3.0 during the fall of 2015.

  • Developed 36 football players to go on to play collegiate football, including 14 Division I players.

  • Initiated a variety of community service programs, including a program where Lawrence Central football student-athletes travel to elementary schools to help the elementary students prepare for ISTEP testing.

Because of these measures, Lawrence Central football student-athletes developed academically, personally and athletically.  Coach Richman has a philosophy that he wants his players to succeed in everything they do, and he works hard to make sure they have the tools they need to achieve that success.

Prior to Lawrence Central, Coach Richman was the head football Coach at Western Boone High School from 2010-2012.While the head football coach there, he won 73 percent of his games and competed for conference and sectional championships each year. The ten years prior, WeBo had only won 39 percent of their games. The successes went much deeper than wins and losses, though, as the entire culture of the school was transformed at Western Boone.  During his time there, Western Boone became a Four Star School, multiple student athletes continued their playing career at the college level, and accountability and competition were at an all-time high. 

From 2005-2009 Coach Richman was involved in the rebuilding success of Carmel High School's football program.  As the offensive coordinator and offensive backfield coach under Mo Moriarity, Carmel went to four state championship appearances in five years, and Coach Richman coached the 2008 Indy Star Mr. Football Morgan Newton. 

From 2004-2005  Coach Richman was an assistant coach at Ben Davis High School under Head Coach Tom Allen.  Coach Allen has since taken his talents to become the head football coach at Indiana University, but Coach Richman learned much under his mentoring in terms of leadership and relationship building.

Coach Richman started his coaching career at Western High School in Russiaville, Indiana under Hall of Fame Coach Jim Plummer.    He also has coached at Covington High School and has been fortunate to be part of the Bishop Dullaghan Football Camp staff.
