In his fourth season as a member of head coach Jim Margraff's staff is Greg Chimera, a 2009 Johns Hopkins graduate and a four-year member of the Blue Jay football team during his time at Homewood.
Chimera will coach the JHU tight ends and running backs again this season after helping the Blue Jays to a 28-7 record and three Centennial Conference titles in his first three years as an assistant. The Blue Jays have also advanced to the NCAA Playoffs twice (2009, 2011) and won the ECAC South Atlantic Bowl in 2010. Chimera has coached two All-Centennial running backs in Andrew Kase (2009) and Jonathan Rigaud (2011) and one All-CC tight end in Brian Hopkins (2009).
In his first season as a member of the staff in 2009, he helped guide the Blue Jays to a 10-3 record, the Centennial Conference Championship and a trip to the NCAA Quarterfinals. That year, he worked closely with Kase, who earned Centennial Offensive Player of the Year honors and finished his career as JHU's career leader in rushing.
Chimera played fullback and was a regular on special teams throughout his career at Johns Hopkins. He paved the way over his last two years for Kase, who topped 1,000 yards in each season. Chimera scored five touchdowns in his career and started 16 games over his final two seasons.
