Former Moberly High School football coach Jason Ambroson has been named the new Head Coach at William Jewell College. The announcement came late this morning (Sat.). This will be a return to the Liberty campus for Ambroson. He previously served as a coordinator for the Cardinals from 1997-2000.
Before starting a successful run as a high school football coach at Moberly, Ambroson spent time at the NAIA, NCAA-II and NCAA-I levels. While at Jewell he coached running backs and served as the offensive, special teams, and recruiting coordinator. In total with the Cardinals, he coached players who combined for 29 All-Conference honors, one Conference Offensive Player of the Year and three All-America selections.
Ambroson came to Moberly in 2001 where he spent 14 years. After a 1-25 start, Ambroson turned the program around leading the Spartans to their first NCMC, district and sectional titles. His teams won five district championships, and three conference titles, including a pair of undefeated regular seasons Ambroson accumulated an overall mark of 78-46. He has spent the last nine years at Smithville, where he led the Warriors to the Class 4 State Championship in 2021. His career record is 172-91. Ambroson was just inducted into the Missouri Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame earlier this month.
Ambroson becomes the 32nd head football coach in William Jewell history.
