(ABC 6 NEWS) -- It's a new year, and the JM football team has a new offense, not to mention a new head coach.

Kevin Kirkeby comes over from Lourdes, where he was an assistant from 2009-2013, but Kirkeby also spent several years as an assistant at JM.

"The kids have embraced me really nicely," Kirkeby said. "The coaches have been great, and I think the kids have been listening well, and they're doing exactly what we're asking of them."

Kirkeby brings with him a new offense, one which the kids say is simplifying things.

The Rockets open the season against Faribault August 29th.
