Jamie Richardson - Defensive Coordinator
From Windsor High School
I am a 1991 graduate of Windsor High School where I played football, baseball, and basketball (1990 D2 state champions). I have coached football in Windsor for 10 years and the past 5 seasons at the varsity level. I started as the Running back/defensive back coach and have been the defensive coordinator the past two seasons. We have gone 21-0 and won two state championships in the last two years with a great group of young men that I have had the pleasure to coach since they were Pee Wee players.
I just completed my 4th season as the Windsor Varsity baseball head coach and was the assistant under Donald Swinyer for 19 years (1996-2014). Where we were state runner ups in 1997, 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2004. In 2016, we won our first baseball state championship in 41 years.
It is truly and honor to represent VT, coach some of the best athletes in the state, and be a part of the 2018 Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl.
I have worked at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for the past 23 years and currently live in Windsor with my wife Tabatha. I am a proud father of two children, Ryland and Peyton, who also each play three sports for Windsor High School.
