Bio: Aaron Ingram is in his second year as the running backs coach at Sacramento State. During his first season with the team, Ingram tutored a group which rushed for 157.4 yards per game — the most by the Hornets since 2000. Leading the way was freshman Bryan Hilliard who was named all-Big Sky Conference. Hilliard rushed for 826 yards and seven touchdowns despite playing just nine games during the year. He also ended the year strong, rushing for at least 100 yards in each of the final three games, including a 243-yard, three-touchdown effort against Idaho State in season finale.
Junior Travon Jones was also a pivotal part to the 2007 team. Jones ranked second with 734 rushing yards and had three 100-yard games.
Prior to coming to Sacramento State, Ingram spent three seasons as the running backs coach at Foothill College in Los Altos, Calif.
A veteran offensive coach, Ingram was the quarterbacks coach at San Jose City College from Dec. 2002-Dec. 2004 before moving to Foothill. He also had stints as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Washington High School in Fremont (Dec. 2001-Dec. 2002), the receivers and tight ends coach at Fresno City College (March 1999-Dec.2001) and the running backs and quarterbacks coach back at Washington High School (Dec. 1994-Mar. 1999).
While at Fresno City College, the Rams posted a 29-1 overall record in three years and advanced to three consecutive bowl games. The team led the nation in scoring each season and had nine former players go on to play in the NFL.
As an assistant at FCC, Ingram worked closely with current Seattle Seahawk running back Maurice Morris. At Fresno City, Morris set national JC records of 4,487 all-purpose yards and 3,708 yards rushing on 593 carries. The previous national JC records were set by O.J. Simpson while he was at City College of San Francisco.
Ingram became the latest member of his family to coach at Washington HS. His grandfather, Jim, was the longtime head coach while his father, Michael, coached the offensive line.
Ingram graduated from Washington High School in Fremont in 1991 and played at Cal State Hayward until the program was discontinued in 1994. He will graduate from Sacramento State in the spring.
