Even as he was playing in the Arena Football League in places like Pittsburgh, Tampa and Cincinnati, Calip was coaching the running backs at Ada High School.
After one year of serving as the head coach at Tulsa Kelley, Calip moved up to the college ranks, coaching running backs at the University of Tulsa.
Two years later, Calip moved back to high school at Tulsa Union.
Since 2009, he's been at Jenks for his second stint with the Trojans.
Jenks won the Class 6A state title earlier this month.
Brad's son, Braden, was a senior on that team.
Bryant is on the staff as well, coaching the cornerbacks for the Trojans.
“To be on the same staff with my brother now and to win it with my son playing was awesome,” Brad said. “I won it my senior year, and to have him finish his high school career the same way was unbelievable.”
