Hello, I'm Coach Tim Mendoza. My career coaching record is 45-25-0 in 7 seasons over 10 years at the Adult Minor League level with 5 different teams as an assistant and Head Coach from 1999 until 2009. I did not coach at this level in 2003, 2006 and 2007. It started in 1999 with me coming on board a Mountain View Flyers team that had just resuited and changed to the Redwood City Dodge 49ers. I coached Linebackers most of that year under legendary coach Alex Marchan then took over the QB and offense as coordinator with 2 games left in the season. In 2000 returning, we took the #69 western regionally ranked offense with the 49ers to the #1 offense in averaging over 35 points, 400 yards and 4 TD's per game and winning our first organizational championship. The very next year, in 2001 we improved on that by fielding the #1 offense again with over 38 points per game and the #1 defense in the entire Region while going 10-0 and winning our second team championship. I then coached the San Jose Jaguars in 2002 and took over the offense of a team that had not had a winning season in 4 years and went 6-3 while making the playoffs for the first time in their history. We had three of the league's top 5 leading receivers and a top 3 QB in Alex Amin (you might remember his cousin, Zamir, played and set Div. 2 records at Menlo Atherton). I then had rebuilding efforts with the Modesto Raiders for 2 seasons and the Eastbay Outlaws in 2004, 2005 and 2008 next before finishing my last season in 2009 with the California Warriors under owner Mike Sagapolu. While with the Warriors, we started out the season very strong with the #1 passing attack and Quarterback in Richard Amarillas in the entire league through the first 6 games of the season. Injuries plagued us starting when our QB went down, and we didn't end up with the season we had hoped for. All in all, I won 2 championships and made 6 playoff appearances with 5 different teams. Soon after that summer, I moved to Texas and have not coached as yet although the USA Public Service League came calling when they saw my bio online. At this time I am not planning to return to coaching but it was one of the most rewarding and exciting things I've ever done! Thank you, Coach Tim.
