Colgate Is Not Immune

This posting is a little late, but you have probably heard that Offensive Coordinator Mike Foley has left Colgate for UConn, filling the position left by Norries Wilson who left to become the head coach at Columbia. That means Colgate now joins every team except Holy Cross and Bucknell with some significant coaching changes this off season.

Foley, a Colgate grad, has been a great member of Biddle's championship staff and will be missed. He was a great professional and brought a wealth of talent and experience to this Colgate team. I think I can speak for all of Colgate that we wish Mike well and hope that he goes as far as his dreams may.

As this pertains to Colgate, we now have the task of finding a new architect to lead the Colgate offense. My gut tells me Biddle will promote Dan Hunt, currently the quarterback coach, to the role. Hunt has been with the program since the Sweeney Days and is an all around great guy. I think he's the right choice unless someone too good to be true lands in our lap.

Also, it is good to see the honors continue to roll in for senior linebacker Jared Nepa, this time being named I-AA Linebacker of the Year for the northeast region by Football Gazette. Jordan Scott, Chris Petrone and Geoff Bean also got second and third team honors by the same publication.


  • 13, to add to your post, Bucknell assistant coach Jim Reid is now taking over the reins at VMI, so Bucknell isn't immune either. That leaves Holy Cross as the onlu intact staff.

    As always, great work on your blog! Who thought we'd have so much to talk about in December, eh?

    Who's changing at Lafayette? No one...
