So far you may be saying this is interesting but you can probably think of other former athletes who got married, or of coaches who are married. But there is more to the story-- both of them have coached teams to State Championships. Lori was an assistant coach when Bettendorf took second on three occasions, then she took over as head coach and they won the Iowa State Title. Jay has coached a State Champ in both girls basketball and in softball. Tell me you know some other couples who have both coached teams to a State Championship- wow!
Jay and Lori are married and now have two daughters. Jay still teaches and coaches at Alleman, Lori is not coaching now but teaching at Bettendorf.
