Jason Brisbane (born 8 March 1983 in London, England) is an American football player and coach. He was signed by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 2008 and currently is defensive coordinator of the Leicester Falcons.

Playing careerEdit

Brisbane began his playing career in England. Relatively small for the game, he compensated with extra speed, aggression and what coaches like to refer to as 'a nose for the ball' as a linebacker. He quickly played his way into the Great Britain teams at youth and then senior level and in 2004 he set a team record for the London Blitz by recording 22 tackles in a game. He was named the British American Football League's Most Valuable Player in 2004.

In 2008 Brisbane moved to the United States, and was picked up by the San Diego Chargers practice squad, but was released at the end of the season.

In 2011 Brisbane joined British American Football team Leicester Falcons as defensive coordinator. He later signed a contract to play in the Swiss league with the Calanda Broncos where they won the Swiss championship.

In 2012 Brisbane returned to his former team the London Blitz where they reached the quarter finals of the EFL and defeated the London Warriors in the BritBowl final
