Sarasota, Fl: Ernest P. Givins Jr. has signed on to be the new head coach of the highly accomplished Minor league football team, The Sarasota Millionaires! As an ex-NFL star, Givins brings a wealth of talent and athletic insight to a team that is notable for their winning spirit! His professional career began as a wide receiver when he was picked by the Houston Oilers in the second round of the NFL 1986 Draft. Nine of Givins’ 10 seasons in the NFL were played with the Oilers which included a two-time selection for the 1990 and 1992 Pro Bowl. He was recognized for his celebration dances after a touchdown in which many passes came through the hands of legendary quarterback, Warren Moon. Givins’ career stats include an impressive 571 receptions, 8,215 receiving yards, and 49 touchdowns.

As a member of the Florida Football Alliance, the Sarasota Millionaires welcome Givins to the team with anticipation of an unprecedented season of success. “Our team was established in 2006 and we have already made tremendous accomplishments,” says Sarasota Millionaire Owner, Calvin Williams. “With Ernest bringing his expertise to the field we are truly an unstoppable team. All we have to do is practice hard and execute smart defensive and offensive plays on game day, maintain the team spirit, and give 100% to ourselves and our community.”

"The Sarasota Millionaires are dedicated to providing pride and growth in our community. It is not just about football but also about providing success to our players both on and off the field".

Robert "Pig" Goff Joins The Millionaires As Their New "Strength & Conditioning" Coach

The Sarasota Millionaires have named former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Robert "Pig" Goff as their new Strength and Conditioning coach. Goff is the second former NFL’er to join the Millionaires coaching staff. Former Houston Oiler standout Ernest Givins was named the team’s head coach earlier this season. Goff, who played for the Bucs, New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings, graduated from Bayshore High School in nearby Bradenton, FL. He was a guest speaker last season addressing the team on motivation, dedication and preparation.“The Millionaires organization is honored to have Goff join their program and knows with his experience and wealth of knowledge he will be a great asset to the Millionaires organization”, said owner Bethsaida Williams.“Pig” Goff was one of the first to bring Minor League Football to the Sarasota /Bradenton area when he created the Palmetto Hogs. Goff played at Bayshore as a 220-pound defensive lineman. Despite the Bruins finishing with a 3-7 record, he was still recruited by several schools. He attended Butler County Community College in Kansas for two years, where he was named to the Junior College All-America team. He then signed with Kansas, but transferred to Auburn and had to sit out a season in two seasons at Auburn Goff had 81 tackles, including six sacks and 10 tackles for losses as he grew into a 265-pound frame.
