A 13-year NFL veteran offensive lineman, Jonathan Goodwin joins the staff as offensive assistant/quarterbacks in 2024. Over his decade-plus-long playing career (2002-14), Goodwin started 134-of-211 regular-season and postseason games for the New York Jets, New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2009. Over his three seasons with San Francisco playing under Head Coach Jim Harbaugh, Goodwin started every game at center, helping lead the 49ers to three-straight NFC Championship Games and an appearance in Super Bowl XLVII. Goodwin served as the anchor and general of a Saints offensive front in 2009, earning all-star recognition while leading New Orleans to an NFC South Division title and helping pave the way for Saints in their defeat of the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV, starting every game at center for the World Champions.

Providence Day School, coaching his two sons, Channing and Jace, and helping the program claim their third-straight State Championship this past season.
