He is a former Nigerian-American football Cornerback. Jimoh grew up in Canoga Park and attended El Camino Real High School where he was a two-year Letterman and a second-team all-league selection, as well as a preseason third-team all-area pick. In his senior year, his team won the city championship.
He played college football for Utah State University. He started all 11 games at left corner his sophomore year in 2000 and earned second team All-Big West honors as well as the team’s outstanding defensive back.
Jimoh was signed by the Redskins in April 2003 as an undrafted rookie free agent.[citation needed] In 2003, Jimoh appeared in all 16 games with the Redskins as a reserve Cornerback but mostly on special teams coverage units. In 2004 Chicago Bears signed Jimoh to assist with special teams, due to the promotion of kick returner Danieal Manning to take the place of injured starting safety Mike Brown. Between September 16, 2007 and September 24, 2007, Adeola was twice waived and then re-signed a few days later to make room for fill-in punter Dirk Johnson.
