Pyear headed for Laurier as youngest coach
Despite some anxiety about his inexperience, Centennial Secondary School graduate Ryan Pyear is ready for the challenges that lie ahead as the youngest-ever offensive co-ordinator for Wilfrid Laurier University's Golden Hawks football team.
Pyear, 24, is the first back-to-back winner of Belleville's Robinson-Kelleher Memorial Award for athlete of the year.He graduated this year from Laurier and loved the football team so much, he decided to stay.
As of Feb 3, Pyear officially began his new job, taking responsibility for calling plays in games, as well as personnel, substitutions, general organization of offense, recruiting for the team, and media relations.
Pyear said the most awkward part of the job so far is having to coach many of his old teammates.
"It is weird, especially with some of them.Some of them are older than I am, and for me to be their coach is kind of a strange feeling that I was expecting to experience, so I'm just going to have to roll with the punches," he said.
After only just under three months' experience, Pyear is already getting used to the feeling of being in charge.It's going much smoother than he had anticipated.
"Obviously, the challenge for him is making the move from player to coach, but we've surrounded him with a number of coaches on the offensive side of the ball that have a good amount of experience on the coaching side.Ryan will be able to make the adjustment from player to coach in a hurry," said Peter Baxter, Director of Athletics at Wilfrid Laurier.
Pyear is not just familiar with the coaching staff as a player; his dad is running-back coach for the team.Pyear says this will only make him work harder.
"I want to impress him and make sure I'm doing a good job.And having him around, he'll always push me to make sure I'm not slacking," he said.
Pyear is confident that his appointment was a good choice for the team.He explained that when the coaching staff changes, it's usually tough for the team.What he said he has to offer, that no one else could provide, is stability.
"The advantage of having me in there will be that we can run the same offence, and I know this offense as well as anybody does, so I'll be able to come in and keep the offense stabilized the way it has been this last year.Hopefully, we'll be able to continue the success we've had with it," he said.
Pyear said he hopes to be able to try new things and think outside the box because he hasn't created a system for himself yet.He sees his youth as making him more flexible, although he won't feel 100 per cent comfortable until he gets more experience.
Despite these worries, Pyear is looking forward to a successful season, and the university's staff and administration agree.

Pyear hired as new offensive coordinator
Ryan Pyear, Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, Football
WATERLOO - Wilfrid Laurier University has hired former quarterback Ryan Pyear to fill the position of Offensive Coordinator.
Manager of football operations and head coach Gary Jefferies said the appointment of Pyear, Laurier's President's award winner as the top male athlete last year, Vanier Cup MVP and first team all-Canadian among other major achievements, shows a strong commitment by the university to recognize its student athletes - beyond their competitive days.
"I believe we have a great one in Ryan who understands young people, has the respect of his peers and will help us build contenders for many years to come."
Pyear, who is considered to be among the top university athletes in the country this year, completed 116 of 174 passes for 1,666 yards in eight league games last season.His 19 touchdown passes was top in the country and tied for No. 1 with only four interceptions.
"This is a dream come true and a tremendous career development opportunity," said Pyear, under estimated throughout his playing career by many prognosticators."As a team, we had a goal this past season - and we achieved it.It's a page in our history, now we are in pursuit of our next goal."
Joining Pyear on an acclaimed coaching staff are former Laurier football players Rod Philp and Todd Galloway.
