Jacolby Maxwell is a member of the coaching staff at Greenville University. Before coming to Greenville to be an assistant coach, he spent his summer working with his former high school, Aurora Christian. Maxwell graduated from Monmouth College in 2019 where he played wide receiver for three seasons while earning his bachelor’s degree in exercise science. While playing, Maxwell was in the top five in career receiving yards, receptions, and touchdowns at Monmouth College. After he graduated from Monmouth College, he continued taking some graduate courses at Aurora University, and he went on to play for their team. While going to Aurora University, he held the single-season record in receptions, reception yards, and career touchdowns. He still holds the records for receptions, reception yards and career touchdowns, and it does not seem like anyone will break his records anytime soon.

While he learned a lot about how to play his position, he has also learned a lot about how to be a coach in the college level from other coaches that he played with or worked with in college or his former high school where he helped be a coach there before Greenville. Maxwell just graduated back in 2019, and he got hired this past semester as the wide receiver coach, which is the position that he played when he attended college.
