Jerome Pathon enters his third year with the Toreros where he will oversee the USD wide receivers.
Picked in the second round of the 1998 NFL Draft, Pathon played eight seasons with Indianapolis, New Orleans and Atlanta, finishing his career with 260 receptions for 3,350 yards and 15 touchdowns. In New Orleans, he was involved in the famous "River City Relay" play that won the 2004 ESPY Award for Best Play.
Pathon played collegiately at the University of Washington. He had one of the greatest seasons ever for a Washington wideout in 1997, setting records for receptions (69) and receiving yards (1,245) while earning first-team All-America honors. He ranks third all-time among Husky receivers, behind only Reggie Williams and Mario Bailey, with 2,275 career receiving yards.
Prior to coming to USD, Jerome earned both coaching and scouting experience at the collegiate and pro level. He worked as an assistant to UW Huskies wide receiver's coach Jimmie Dougherty while completing his B.A. degree in Marketing and Advertising. In 2008 he worked with the Indianapolis Colts (scouting internship during training camp) and the BC Lions (scouting internship during training camp).
He is the President of Jerome Pathon First & Long Football Camp which helps organize charity events to raise funds for Football British Columbia, and also coordinated various training sessions to promote ongoing development and goal setting for youth in the Vancouver community.
