Menlo-Atherton hires a new head football coach

 

Menlo-Atherton High didn't have to look far to find a new head football coach when it hired Adhir Ravipati, who has served as the team's offensive coordinator since 2012.

Ravipati brings a wealth of experience coaching high school sports. In addition to being offensive coordinator, he is also an assistant coach with the M-A varsity boys' basketball program.

Prior to his time as the offensive coordinator in football, Ravipati served as a varsity assistant coach during the Bears' 2012 Central Coast Section playoff run and was the JV head coach in the 2011 season. In 2011, he also coached varsity basketball at his alma mater, Harker School.

During his time at Harker, Adhir lettered in five sports -- football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and track, and achieved distinction in all five sports. He was selected to play in the 2005 Charlie Wedemeyer All-Star football game, a game he later coached as the offensive coordinator in 2011.

Following his time at Harker, Adhir attended the University of San Diego, playing football for current Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and Stanford head coach David Shaw. The Toreros were a top-25 program at the FCS Level, winning PFL titles during his time there.

Following his time at USD, Adhir transferred to Northeastern University to continue playing football at the FCS level for three seasons -- leading the team in yards per catch his senior season.

As a coach, Adhir believes in developing a complete student-athlete with a focus on achieving in the classroom, and being a positive member of the community.
