For Immediate Release: Danny Principe Hired as Beaumont Defensive Coordinator

The Beaumont Renegades continue to round out their coaching staff.

The team has officially announced the hiring of Danny Principe as defensive coordinator.

"I am honored to represent such a community," Principe said. “When I was coaching college, I recruited a handful of kids from the golden triangle. The more I learned from them about their community the more it reminds me of home. I’m excited about this opportunity. I can’t wait to represent this city."

Principe has spent his life around football, starting as a player before working his way up the ladder in coaching. His high school coaching experience along with defense includes leading special teams, running backs, linebackers, defensive backs, as well as strength and conditioning.

After stints at North Broward Preparatory and Village School, Principe moved up to the collegiate level at North American University, where he served as assistant head coach and defensive coordinator for nearly half a decade.

No stranger to the Texas football way, Principe expects disciplined and excuse-free play from his defensive unit.

"My motto is 'disciplined arrogance,'" Principe said. “No stupid penalties, no blown assignments. Arrogance, (which entails) pure dominance between whistles with a smile on our face as we do it. This was my mentality when I played and it’s what I instill in my players who strap up and go to war."

Team co-owner Derron Griffin had nothing but praise for the new coordinator.

"From being next to him when he was at college, defensive coordinator, seeing the extra intensity that he brought, and the ability to get the best out of his players made it a no-brainer for us," Griffin said. "His great ability to communicate with players at all levels is what a defense needs to win games."

The newly-hired coordinator, who helped coach the participants at the team's first combine earlier this month, feels Beaumont fits him like a glove.

"I was raised very similar to the people of this community. I feel at home in Beaumont," Principe said. "Football has always been a factor in my life and always will. "I love what I’m hearing and seeing around this team and community. This is going to be something special and I am proud to be a part of it."
