Keiki Misipeka
Running Backs Coach

Misipeka is in his first year on the Delaware State staff. In addition to running backs coach, he also serves as special teams coordinator.

Prior to joining the Hornets, Misipeka was a member of the Garden City Community College (Kan.) football staff as Running Backs Coach and International Recruiting Coordinator,   

In 2017, Garden City posted an 8-4 overall record and 5-2 mark in the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference. The Broncbusters also competed in the Heart of Texas Bowl last season. Garden City running back Charles West was a 2017 all-conference selection.

Before his tenure at Garden City, Misipeka joined the coaching staff at Silverado High School in Las Vegas Nev., under former National Football League quarterback Randall Cunningham in 2015. In his first year at Silverado, the team reached the state playoffs and was a game away from capturing the conference championship.   

Before Silverado High School, Misipeka was defensive backs coach for two years at Farrington High School in Hawaii. During his tenure, the team was a two-time state championship runner-up, while  the defensive unit was ranked in the top five in the state.  

Misipeka started his coaching career in American Samoa at his alma mater Samoana High School as defensive coordinator. The team made a state championship game appearance while he was on the coaching staff. 

Misipeka was also Player Development Officer for Field House 100 Recruiting and Pasefika International Sports Alliance, each a non-profit organization that assists student athletes with scholarship opportunities.  Both organizations help secure scholarship opportunities for athletes from American Samoa, Samoa, Tonga, Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, Nigeria, Germany, Canada and parts of the U.S. 

The organizations have assisted more than 200 student-athletes, including seven National Football League players and three college academic All-Americans.      

Misipeka and his wife Tufi are from American Samoa and have seven children.
