Oxford hires Newton as head varsity football coach

OXFORD – Oxford Academy has a new head varsity football coach.

Jeff Newton, a 1999 Norwich High School graduate, was recently appointed head coach following school board approval. Newton comes to the Blackhawks with over 20 years of football experience as a player and coach.



He worked as a football coach in the Sherburne-Earlville school district the past nine years where he was a modified and junior varsity head coach, while also working three years as a varsity assistant coach.

"(The job opening at Oxford) was brought to my attention by some community members in Oxford who had seen the way that I coach," Newton said. "They thought I would be a good fit to coach their players, and lead them in a new direction."
