John Bloomfield enters his 4th season, in 2007, as Head Football Coach at St. Francis Xavier University. He arrived at X with a tradition of excellence matched by few others.
Bloomfield was a member of the dominant Western Mustang teams of the 1980’s that appeared in the Vanier Cup in 1985 and 1986. After finishing his degree he spent a year as a teacher and assistant coach at Lahser HS in Michigan. In 1991 he returned to Canada and became head coach at Belle River HS in Ontario.
Over his eleven year tenure as a high school head coach in Ontario, both at Belle River HS and Sandwich Secondary, Bloomfield amassed a record of 95 wins and 20 losses. His teams won six city and three provincial championships during this span and were ranked by national coaching polls in three seasons as the number one high school football team in the country (1995, 2001, 2002).
In addition to being a full-time teacher and high school head coach, he also served as head coach of the Windsor AKO Fratmen of the Canadian Junior Football League from 1996-2001. Bloomfield led the Fratmen to five consecutive undefeated seasons against conference opponents, five provincial championship titles, two national championship appearances, and a national championship victory in 1999. The 1999 Fratmen were the first Ontario based team to win the CJFL national title in over thirty years.
Bloomfield was named OFC Coach of the Year four times and in 1996 & 1999 he was named CJFL Coach of the Year.
Bloomfield accepted an offer to become Offensive Coordinator of the Windsor Lancers in 2001. With his help the Lancers won more games in two seasons than in the four previous seasons combined, and made the OUA playoffs both times. His final victory prior to being hired by StFX was a win over the University of Western Ontario in the 2003 OUA quarterfinals.
In three seasons at StFX Bloomfield’s teams have amassed a regular season record of 10 wins and 13 losses with one playoff victory coming in 2005 versus archrival St. Mary’s.

Both coaches have been successful and know how an offense should be run.
Hire these guys and let them hire their own coaching staff and the Eskimos would be reborn.
