The Many Expressions Of Kerry Coombs

Entering his third season as a coach with the University of Cincinnati, former local prep coach Kerry Coombs has made a tremendous mark on the Bearcats football program. But while Coombs has done wonders for the Bearcats recruiting and defensive backs, he may be more known for the many expressions shown during a practice.

Make no mistake Kerry Coombs loves coaching football and working with the young men who play defensive back for him at the University of Cincinnati.

With four former Bearcats in the NFL who played for Coombs, it's no wonder many feel he's gone from a question mark hire when Brian Kelly arrived to a coach fan's and players are happy to have.

One of the benefits of having been in this business as long as Bearcat Insider has is we've watched Coombs go from the head coach at Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain High School to UC.

While at the helm of the Cardinals program Coombs was a coach who was known for his great motivational coaching style as well as getting the fan base behind it's team.

While Kerry Coombs works more in the background of the Bearcats staff fans don't get a chance to see how emotional he gets during practice. Bearcat Insider tries to give you the full effect of the passion Kerry Coombs has on the field in this special photo gallery of the Bearcats defensive back coach in action.

During a course of a practice Kerry Coombs will show many faces. On Saturday, Bearcat Insider pointed it's camera at Coombs in a hope to show you the many expressions Coach Coombs can show during just a couple of drills.

Keep in mind these photos were taken during two drills at Saturday's practice and you'll get a chance to see why players love to play for him.
