Kevin, a certified personal trainer, earned a Bachelors of Arts and Master's of Arts in Sport Sciences from University of the Pacific.
Assisting Kevin this season is his fiancee, Kellie Simler, who spent four seasons with the Tigers and is also a member of the No Limit all star team.
Joining the Tigers this season is Jenise Mills-Fitzpatrick, who comes to Pacific after serving as head coach for both the cheer and dance programs at San Jose State University for the past five seasons. Mills-Fitzpatrick also spent seven seasons as a professional cheerleader with both the San Francisco 49ers and the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena Football League.
