SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes and Los Angeles Rams safety Eric Weddle will become the next head coach of the Rancho Bernardo High School football team.

The Broncos announced Weddle as their next head coach in a Facebook post on Saturday, February 19.

“It’s official! The 2022 football season will be coach McCoy’s last as the RBHS head coach. Coach McCoy has led the Broncos’ football program the past 11 seasons, and built a reputation of hard work and character. At the end of the 2022 season he will be handing the reins to Super Bowl Champ Eric Weddle, who will take over as head of the program. Eric will be joining the Bronco family this season to learn the BLUE in, BLUE out culture. Coach McCoy plans to remain on staff and support Coach Weddle in the upcoming years. LET’S BE GREAT!!”

Weddle is a native of Southern California. He was born in Fontana and attended high school at Alta Loma in Rancho Cucamonga.

Eric Weddle in the NFL

Prior to the NFL Playoffs, the former Utah standout came out of retirement to help Los Angeles’ depleted secondary.

Weddle helped the Rams win Super Bowl LVI on February 13. After the game, Weddle announced that he would re-retire from the NFL.

In the Super Bowl, Weddle had five total tackles and four solo tackles despite playing much of the game with a ruptured pectoral muscle.

On Friday, February 18, Weddle underwent surgery to repair the muscle.

In four postseason contests, Weddle recorded 18 total tackles and 10 solo tackles.

Weddle finished his career with 1,252 tackles, 955 solo tackles, 11.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, 30 interceptions, 104 pass breakups, and four touchdowns in 214 games.
