Former Bucs DL Chris Hovan joins Chamberlain football staff

Chris Hovan, known for his years of tenacity in the National Football League, has joined the Chamberlain High football coaching staff, according to Chiefs coach Joe Severino.
As big a coup as this is – adding someone with more than a decade of NFL experience to the staff – Severino was matter-of-fact and calm about it.
“A friend of mine knew him and I needed a D-line coach, so he introduced us,” Severino said. “He wants to coach.”
Hovan, who played college football at Boston College, has already taken over the weight room at the school as Chamberlain players have started a new lifting cycle for the spring. Severino admits he’s already impressed. He said coaching is about wanting to be there and Hovan has already shown he wants to be there.
“He’s very enthusiastic. He’s got a lot of go in him,” Severino said.
Hovan, 32, played five seasons for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2005-09) after being signed as a free agent from the Minnesota Vikings, where he played five seasons (2000-04). The Cleveland, Ohio native signed with the St. Louis Rams in 2010, but was placed on injured reserve due to a back injury.
