Armand Mensen Offensive coordinator

Grew up in Canada watching football but it wasn't until he was 17 that he put on pads himself for the Barcelona Pioneers junior team playing TE and DE. While attending the University of Edinburgh he played for the local team, the Wolves at QB and TE. In his second year he founded the University club, the Timberwolves (currently the Napier Knights). Armand moved to Switzerland in 2006 and immediately contacted the Bern Grizzlies about playing and coaching. While playing for the NLA team, Armand was also head coach of the Junior team for the following three years before dedicating himself to pursue his academic career and focus on playing for the senior team. In his almost decade long with the Bern Grizzlies Armand started games at QB, WR, FB, OT and OG, but most often played TE. From 2012 to 2014 he also served as the team's offensive coordinator before moving to Wisconsin, USA until returning to Bern in 2016. After two seasons away from football, Armand returns to the Grizzlies for the 2018 season serving as offensive assistant coach.
