Never underestimate the winning ways of Valley College football Coach Jim Fenwick. Beating his football team was a difficult task in 1993 and it was nearly impossible this season. Fenwick guided the Monarchs to a 10-1 record and their second consecutive bowl-game victory, all solid proof that his program is now among the state's elite. But some wondered how Fenwick, a former star running back at Pierce and Wichita State, would shape the young Monarchs into contenders.

Another Fenwick is making a name for himself in the coaching ranks. Tyler Fenwick, the 24-year-old son of former Cal State Northridge and Valley College coach Jim Fenwick, is largely responsible for putting together Birmingham's run-and-shoot passing attack. Fenwick, who played football at Chaminade, Valley and New Mexico, is in his first season of coaching. He learned the passing game from his father. "I love it," he said of coaching. Jim is offensive coordinator at Eastern Oregon.

It didn't take long for Jim Fenwick, Cal State Northridge's first-year football coach, to size up the situation. After spending two days here at the Big Sky Conference summer kickoff convention that ended Tuesday, Fenwick came away somewhat dejected and frustrated. "I feel we are not being taken very seriously," Fenwick said. "We should be able to get the same kind of respect as those other teams."

Jim Fenwick, who resigned as Cal State Northridge football coach two years ago to become offensive coordinator at New Mexico, said Monday he has been told his contract will not be renewed. Fenwick, 47, left Northridge to join former UCLA defensive coordinator Rocky Long, the Lobos' coach. New Mexico was 4-7 and 3-9 in Fenwick's two seasons. Fenwick said he was never allowed to turn New Mexico's offense into his specialty, a no-huddle, run-and-shoot, spread attack.

Where are you, Paul Bubb detractors? Where did you go? Bubb, before he became Cal State Northridge's athletic director, was on the panel which recommended the hiring of Dave Baldwin as football coach. When Baldwin left, he hired a guy I hope becomes synonymous with Northridge football, Jim Fenwick. Bubb hired Mike Batesole, who has continued the legacy of great baseball at Northridge. Bubb also hired Bobby Braswell to turn around the men's basketball program. Braswell, in his first year, brought Northridge to within one victory of the NCAA tournament.

There were dozens of new faces at the first day of spring football practice Wednesday at Cal State Northridge, but a familiar one was missing. Jim Fenwick, running backs coach for the Matadors last season, has left the staff to take a year off from coaching. Fenwick was head coach at Pierce College and led the Brahmas to a Southern California Conference championship in 1985 before joining Coach Bob Burt's staff at Northridge last season.

Nearly one year after he said hello as the new football coach at Cal State Northridge, Jim Fenwick is saying goodbye. Fenwick said Monday he is leaving Northridge to become offensive coordinator at New Mexico.

One year ago, while looking ahead as we do every December, we picked seven people from the region we believed would make an impact on the sports scene in 1997. We called it the Seven for '97. Now it's time to see how our selections fared during the year. MR. X That's what we called the football coach at Cal State Northridge because, last December, nobody knew who it would be in 1997.

With one game remaining in his first season as Cal State Northridge football coach, Jim Fenwick already is feeling the emotion. "The spirit [of the team] will stay with me for a long time," Fenwick said. "It's been a lot of time spent with relationships [being] built and here's the last game so it's a combination of a rewarding season in a lot of ways if you don't look just at the wins and losses."

Jim Fenwick is back home and he brought a few friends from work. The Cal State Northridge first-year football coach, who was born in Pocatello, on the southeast side of the state, is in town with the Matadors to face Boise State tonight in the opener for both teams. But Fenwick is not expecting red carpet treatment. After all, he's not exactly a household name here, having moved with his family from Idaho to the Valley as a teenager in the 1960s.

As uncharted as the territory is for Jim Fenwick on the journey he's about to start, he at least has an idea of what the immediate road looks like. Fenwick begins his major college football coaching career Saturday night when Cal State Northridge, a Division I-AA school, plays at Division I-A Boise State in a nonconference opener. It is a big step for Fenwick, who built national powerhouses at Valley and Pierce colleges, but who has not been a head coach at any level higher than junior college.
