Giovan Jenkins is stepping down as Minneapolis Washburn's football coach to become a volunteer in the Gophers' football department, Washburn Athletics Director Reginald Perkins announced Tuesday.

Jenkins spent 14 seasons as an assistant coach and head coach at Washburn, helping the Millers win 13 Minneapolis Conference championships and advance to the section finals six times, with one state tournament appearance.

Jenkins coached Ra'Shede Hageman and Jeff Jones on their way to joining the Gophers. Beginning in March, Jenkins will be volunteering for the Gophers in a non-coaching capacity.
