Rampage Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator Matt Girdley enters his fourth season of leading the Black & Orange after serving as the head coach of the Burlington Express in 2013.  Under Girdley's leadership, the 2014 Rampage raced to a 4-0 start after starting 3 different quarterbacks in the first four games.  The Rampage finished the season with a final record of 8-3 while advancing to the SPFL Semifinals.  Along the way, the Rampage were ranked nationally as high as #5 and during the last game of the regular season, beat then-undefeated and #2 ranked Southwest Huskerz 32-22.  In their three loses, the Rampage lost by 13, 10, and 7 points, respectively.

Girdley's sophomore 2015 campaign witnessed the Rampage again race out to a 4-0 start and the eventual #2 seed for the playoffs with a 6-1 regular season record; the Rampage also again advanced to the Semifinals before losing to the South Central Hawgs, 21-18, a team team they had beaten 3 weeks earlier 23-20.  The 2015 Rampage ended the season 7-2, bringing Girdley's two-year record of the Rampage to 15-5.  For his outstanding job leading the Rampage, Girdley was unanimously voted by his peers as the 2015 SPFL "Coach of the Year." To begin his career, Girdley led the Express to a 5-6 record as members of the UFL.

Girdley is a Fort Dodge native a former player for the 2008 Manson Eagles in 2008 in which he was teammates with many current members of the Rampage and was also coached by Rampage defensive coordinator Marty Hart.  Girdly also serves as the Offensive Coordinator for the Rampage and which features an explosive, no-huddle attack aimed at both scoring quickly and often as proven by the 351 points the Rampage scored in 2014 including such performances over the Tri-State Buffalos, 60-20, the North Iowa Bucks, 66-0, and the Steele County Warriors, 51-6 (which was a 1s Round SPFL Playoff game).  On average, the Rampage averaged 32 points a game last year and that number is even more impressive considering the fact that three different quarterbacks led the Rampage to 8 victories.

Regarding the upcoming 2016 season, Girdley said, "As far as I'm concerned, what we've done the past two years has been great for establishing what type of team and organization we are.  We're in a new town now which means a new identity.  Let's go!"
