Dr. Sho Fukushima

w w w. N AV YS P O RT S . c o m

Head Coach 21st Year at Navy Washington ’71 Record at Navy: 213-209 (.507)

Dr. Sho Fukushima, a tenured professor in Physical Education, has guided the Navy gymnastics program for the past 20 seasons with class, honor and dignity. The numbers -- both academically and athletically -- that have been produced during Fukushima’s tenure speak for themselves. In the classroom, Fukushima has produced 37 Academic All-America honors, and in the athletic arena, he has coached the Mids to a total of 37 NCAA Championship qualifying performances. “When I first arrived at the Naval Academy, there was no organization at all in the program,” Fukushima said. “I was determined to change everything in the program and have it fit my liking. It took nearly three years, but I was finally able to blend Midshipmen who excelled in the classroom and in the athletic arena.” Last season, Fukushima guided Navy to its third consecutive Star as the Mids defeated Army at West Point. He also mentored Andrew Faulk and Dylan Parrott (for the second time) to NCAA Championships appearances. In 2009, he guided the Mids to one of their finest seasons since taking over the reigns, as they finished with an impressive 15-4 record and coached Navy to a NStar victory at Army, in addition to its second-straight All-Academy Championship. The Midshipmen also earned their first trip as a team to the NCAA Qualifying Meet. The accomplishments of his athletes at Navy has also brought him much deserved individual recognition as well. In 1997-98, 1999-00, 2004-05 and 2007-08, Fukushima was named Coach of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches (NACGC) and was named Men’s Team Coach of the Year by USA Gymnastics. He was also named East Region Coach of the Year by the coaches’ association and, two years ago, was honored as the ECAC Coach of the Year. “The individual awards are nice, but what is special when some of my former gymnasts have returned and finally thanked me for what I was able to do for them when they were here,” he added. “That is what makes coaching special.” Fukushima, who owns a 213-209 (.505) all-time record, came to Navy in 1991 after coaching in several places around the world. He began his gymnastics career in Japan and moved onto other places, including the Montreal Olympics and the Verna World Championships. He has coached five Olympians and five USA National Team members. He has also published two books on gymnastics in Sweden and England, in addition to writing numerous articles in Europe, Japan and the United States. Fukushima graduated from Washington with a B.A. and M.S., and completed his Ph.D. at California in 1984. He earned the Pac-8 Conference Scholar-Athlete-of-theYear award in 1971, while also achieving All-America status. He was Pac-10 Coach of the Year at California three times (1984,‘87,‘89) and was also NCAA Western Region Coach of the Year in 1980.

Gessner, Ingram and Parrott Earn All-America Scholar-Athlete Accolades

Nate Gessner and Aaron Ingram were both recognized for their efforts in the classroom last season as each was named to the College Gymnastics Association’s All-America Scholar-Athlete first team, while Dylan Parrott was named to the second team. As a team, Navy ranked 11th nationally in team GPA - two spots ahead of where they ranked last season.

Craig Holt enters his 13th season as Navy assistant coach. Holt brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in the sport of gymnastics as both a former athlete and assistant coach. “Navy is a program built on maximizing individual achievement for the good of the team’s success,” Holt said. “As a team, our training is intense, consistent and scientific. This model helps us develop a strong base of physical gymnastics skill, mental preparation and a strong character.” Last season, Holt was named ECAC Tri-Assistant Coach of the Year as he helped guide Dylan Parrott and Andrew Faulk to the NCAA Championships. In 2009, Holt assisted in helping the Midshipmen to a memorable season, as they finished with an impressive 15-4 record and a N-Star victory at Army. In addition, the Mids won their second-straight All-Academy Championship, placed second at the ECAC Championship and

advanced as a team to the NCAA Qualifying Meet for the first time in program history. His efforts in the gym have not gone unrecognized, as he was named the 2007 NCAA East Region Assistant Coach of the Year, 2006 and ’08 USAG Collegiate Division Assistant Coach of the Year, 2007 and ‘11 ECAC Assistant Coach of the Year and 2007 CGA Regional Co-Assistant Coach of the Year. During the summer of 2005, Holt coached the United States team in the 2005 Maccabiah Games in Israel. Holt guided the United States to a second-place team finish with gold medal performances in the floor exercise and pommel horse. In addition to his coaching duties, Holt also served as a judge at the Maccabiah Games. Holt came to the Academy after serving as an assistant coach for one season at William & Mary and two years at his alma mater, Syracuse. Holt’s commitment to the Navy program in and out of the gym was recognized in 2003 as he was named the ECAC Assistant Coach of the Year. “I would like all of our athletes to leave the Naval Academy knowing that they have the tools to not only meet, but exceed all that is expected of them,” he added. “They should have a strong sense of confidence and accomplishment as they begin their careers.” As a gymnast, Holt was an NCAA finalist on the rings in 1994. He is a 1995 graduate of Syracuse, where he earned a degree in physical education. Holt earned his master’s degree in exercise physiology from Syracuse in the summer of 2002.

SEASON PREVIEW

Despite a small squad that suffered several injuries last season, the Navy gymnastics team exemplified a true fighting spirit as it sent two gymnasts to the NCAA Championships and defeated Army for the third consecutive time. With a sizeable and talented freshman class and six returning letterwinners with ample experience, the Mids are primed to begin the 2012 season.

w w w. N AV YS P O RT S . c o m

The success, as well as adversity, the Mids faced a season ago will only make them stronger in 2012.

“We were restricted with an unusually small squad (eight) to begin with last season,” said Navy head coach Dr. Sho Fukushima. “We were also confronted with several critical injuries, especially at the end of the season. By the start of the ECAC Championship in April, we had just six gymnasts competing due to injury.

“But, we believed in ourselves and trusted in our fellow shipmates and strived for the perfect performance within our capabilities.”

As a result, three Mids – Andrew Faulk, Chris Junghans and the now graduated Dylan Parrott – were selected to compete in the NCAA Qualifying Meet. Both Faulk and Parrott both advanced to the NCAA Championships. This season, Faulk returns as the Mids’ most experienced and talented gymnast. The seven-time ECAC medalist, who overcame a significant injury as a freshman, placed 18th in the allaround at last year’s NCAA Championships.

“Andrew is not a typical administrative leader, but he is the most decorated workhorse who has competed in the NCAA Qualifying Meet the last three years,” said Fukushima. “With his past experience and his leadership style – lead by example – perhaps he will take the entire team to the NCAA meet with him this season.”

The San Antonio, Texas native placed first in the all-around in five meets last season and was named the USAG Collegiate Division National Gymnast of the Week on three occasions.

Faulk will be joined by fellow seniors Aaron Ingram and Brandon Tinkham, giving the team three Mids with significant experience.

Last season, both appeared in all nine meets and figure to contribute in even greater roles this season.

“Aaron and Brandon completely support the team objective for the 2012 season,” said Fukushima. “While they may not be decorated like Andrew, they contribute by leading in their own ways and will definitely be noticed in three or four events this season.”

The team’s lone junior, Austin Zalik, competed in all nine meets as well last season. His best finish came in the rings against Temple where he was the top finishing Mid, tying his careerhigh score of 13.9. “Austin is an especially solid performer on rings and some of the other five events,” said Fukushima. “His contribution in this Ht. 5-7 5-9 5-8 5-6 5-7 5-11 5-7 5-6 5-7 5-7 5-7 5-5 5-5 5-6

Navy’s injuries and thin lineup last season allowed two freshmen – Nate Gessner and Chris Junghans – to contribute considerably. As sophomores, the two Mids will call upon their experience last season to help them improve their roles this winter.

“Nate and Chris are still in the work-in-progress stage, although they are potentially going to surprise others,” said Fukushima.

Gessner competed on the vault in five meets last season and should also contribute on the pommel horse in 2012.

Navy’s sizeable freshman class includes eight Midshipmen, all of which will have the opportunity to contribute. The class includes Caleb Achor, Trevor Carson, Thomas Goodell, Ian Grinaski, Alex Hoersten, Jeff Sauers, Josh Steves and Eric Viscardi. The Mids will begin the season with the Navy Open on Jan. 21 at Macdonough Hall, which will include three other teams in William & Mary, Temple and Springfield.

Navy will see Army in three consecutive competitions, as it will travel north to the West Point Open on Jan. 27-28. Two week-

ends later, Navy will look for its fourth straight Star as it hosts Army in the annual dual on Feb. 11. The 2012 All-Academy Championships, which include the three service academies, will take place on Feb. 18 in San Jose, Calif. Navy will host the first of home-and-home duals with William & Mary on Feb. 26. The Mids will then make the return trip to Williamsburg,Va., to meet the Tribe on March 4.

The Mids will host their final dual of the season on March 10 when they take on Temple.

Navy's championship stretch will begin on March 30 with the USAG Collegiate Division Championships. The two-day meet will take place in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The ECAC Championships follow the next weekend on April 6-7 in Philadelphia, Pa.

The 2012 NCAA Championships will take place in Norman, Okla., beginning with the qualifying meet on April 19. The team and all-around finals will take place on April 20, with the individual event finals on April 21.

FIRST-RATE FACULTY & STAFF The Naval Academy's philosophy of education stresses attention to individual students by highly qualified faculty members who are strongly committed to teaching. Classes are small, with an average size of fewer than 18 students and a student-faculty ratio of 8:1. All courses at the Naval Academy are taught and graded by faculty members, not by graduate assistants.

 v Fi le as

Our 600-member faculty is an integrated group of officers and civilians in nearly equal numbers. Officers bring fresh ideas and experiences from operational units and staffs of the Navy and Marine Corps. The academy's civilian faculty members give continuity to the educational program and form a core of professional scholarship and teaching experience. Working together closely, these military and civilian faculty members form one of the strongest and most dedicated teaching faculties of any college or university in the United States.

As the undergraduate college of the Naval service, the Naval Academy prepares young men and women to become professional officers and leaders in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Naval Academy students are midshipmen on active duty in the U.S. Navy. They attend the academy for four years, graduating with bachelor of science degrees and commissions as ensigns in the Navy or second lieutenants in the Marine Corps. Naval Academy graduates serve at least five years as Navy or Marine Corps officers.

Founded in 1845 by Secretary of the Navy George Bancroft, the Academy started as the Naval School on 10 acres of old Fort Severn in Annapolis with an original class of 55. In 1850 the Naval School became the United States Naval Academy. A new curriculum went into effect requiring midshipmen to study at the Academy for four years and to train aboard ships each summer. Congress authorized the Naval Academy to begin awarding bachelor of science degrees in 1933. Today, the Academy offers 23 major fields of study, a wide variety of elective courses and advanced study and research opportunities. USNA MISSION STATEMENT “To develop midshipmen morally, mentally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, honor and loyalty in order to graduate leaders who are dedicated to a career of naval service and have potential for future deployment in mind and character to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government.�

From the first athletic competition played on the gridiron in 1879 to Navy's recent triumphs, several events, people, rivalries and personalities have shaped the entire Naval Academy athletic program. Below is a look at just some of the history and traditions that make Navy one of the most storied programs in all of collegiate athletics. ANCHORS AWEIGH "Anchors Aweigh" was written by Lt. Charles Zimmermann, Musical Director of the Naval Academy in 1906, with the lyrics provided by Alfred H. Miles of the Class of 1906, as a fight song for the 1907 graduating class instead of the usual class march Zimmermann had composed for previous classes. The song made its debut at the 1906 Army-Navy game, and when the Midshipmen won the game, the song became traditional at this game. It gained national exposure in the 1920s and 1930s when it was heard on the radio and was in a number of popular movies. In 1997 a one-hour documentary on the history of Navy football, titled "Anchors Aweigh for Honor and Glory", was produced by NFL Films. The film was deemed a success by both critics and fans alike. Here are the words: Stand Navy down the field, Sails set to the sky, We'll never change our course, So Army you steer shy. Roll up the score, Navy, Anchors Aweigh, Sail Navy down the field, And sink the Army, Sink the Army Grey

BILL THE GOAT The first recorded use of a goat mascot for Navy athletic teams was in 1893 when an animal named El Cid (The Chief) was turned over to the Brigade by young officers of the USS New York. El Cid helped Navy to a 6-4 triumph over Army that year. Two cats, a dog, and a carrier pigeon have also enjoyed brief reigns as the Navy mascot, but goats have served without interruption since 1904. Bill XXXIII and XXXIV are the current mascots. They are taken care of by 15 goathandlers made up of five midshipmen from the first, second and third classes. The goathandlers undergo rigorous training prior to handling Bill on the field. BLUE & GOLD This song was written in 1923 by Cmdr. Roy DeS. Horn, USN (Ret.) with music composed by J.W. Crosley. Following every home athletic competition, the team faces its fans with their hands on their heart and sings the following notes:-

# 22 #


N AV Y GY M N A S T I C S Now, colleges from sea to sea May sing of colors true; But who has better right than we To hoist a symbol hue? For sailors brave in battle fair, Since fighting days of old, Have proved the sailor's right to wear The Navy Blue and Gold

 The Blue Angels perform an air show along the Severn River on the northern bank of the Academy each spring during Commissioning Week.

ENTERPRISE BELL From the bridge of the famed World War II aircraft carrier, it has been a part of the Naval Academy tradition since 1950. The late Admiral Harry W. Hill, then Superintendent, was instrumental in bringing the "E" Bell to Annapolis. It rings during special ceremonies when Navy scores a majority of victories over Army in any one of the three sports seasons. The bell also rings during Commissioning Week for those teams that beat Army and have not participated in a previous bell-ringing during the academic year. The bell is stationed in front of Bancroft Hall.

 The Navy football team gathered for the traditional singing of the Blue & Gold following its win over Army in 2010, its ninth-consecutive win over its rival. Below: The mens’ lacrosse team sang an emotional rendition of Blue & Gold following its overtime victory over rival Johns Hopkins in 2010.

In the early days of the American Navy, midshipmen trained aboard ship until they were eventually commissioned as ensigns. With the founding of the Naval Academy in 1845, it became possible, as it still is, for a midshipman to enter the Navy directly from civilian life. The name of students at the Naval Academy changed several times between 1870 and 1902, when Congress restored the original title of Midshipman, and it has remained unchanged since. TECUMSEH The familiar Native American figurehead facing Bancroft Hall and Tecumseh Court has been an Annapolis resident since 1866. Originally, the figurehead of the USS Delaware was meant to portray Tamanend, the great chief of the Delawares. It developed that Tamanend was a lover of peace and did not strike the fancy of the Brigade. Looking for another name, Midshipmen referred to the figurehead as Powhatan and King Philip before finally settling on Tecumseh, the fierce Shawnee chieftain who lived from 1768-1813. The original wooden statue was replaced after some 50 years in the open weather by a durable bronze replica, presented by the Class of 1891. It is considered a good-luck "mascot" for the midshipmen, who in times past would throw pennies at it and offer left-handed salutes whenever they wanted a 'favor', such as a sports win over West Point, or spiritual help for examinations. These days it receives a fresh coat of war paint and is often decorated in various themes during football weeks and other special occasions such as Commissioning Week.

MIDSHIPMAN The word midshipman first appeared in English in the 17th century in the form of the word midshipman to designate those men who were stationed "amidships," i.e. in the waist or middle portion of the vessel, while on duty. By 1687, however, the second 's' had been dropped to give the current form of the word. Midshipmen were originally boys, sometimes as young as seven or eight, who were apprenticed to sea captains to learn the sailor's trade.

At the Naval Academy, beating Army is important. Plebes yell “Beat Army!” in Bancroft Hall, “Beat Army!” is on every weight in the Naval Academy weight rooms, and alums and fans alike scream “Beat Army!” at the end of Blue & Gold, the Naval Academy’s alma mater.

Navy has dominated Army in all sports, posting a winning record against the Black Knights in 37 of the last 40 years and has not lost the N-Star series in 15-consecutive years.

23 of Navy’s 32 varsity sports have the potential to take part in the Army-Navy rivalry each year.

The annual showdown between the two rivals in each sport is deemed the Star Game with the players from the winning team receiving a Star for their lettersweaters. For those sports that face Army multiple times in a season, the Star Game is designated prior to the start of the year.

In his 11th year as Director of Athletics, Chet Gladchuk has overseen a renaissance of the Naval Academy athletic program. His administrative leadership has helped lead the program to one of the most successful periods in school history. In 2010-11, Navy won 63 percent of its contests and claimed the overall series against Army for the 18th time in the last 19 years. Navy produced nine All-Americans, 11 conference athletes of the year, nine conference coaches of the year and 11 conference championships. The Mids also excelled in the classroom, ranking No. 4 in the country in graduation rate for student-athletes (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) and all 24 of Navy’s NCAA sponsored varsity sports rank above the national average in the Academic Progress Report, including five teams with perfect scores. Navy had five Academic All-Americans, four Patriot League Scholar Athletes of the Year and an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winner. Six of the top 15 Naval Academy graduates and 28 of the top 100 graduates in the Class of 2011 were involved with varsity or club athletics. The football team had another successful season in 2010, posting a 9-4 record and playing in a school-record eighth-consecutive bowl game. The Mids beat Army for a series-record ninth-consecutive year and defeated Notre Dame for the third time in four seasons. Other teams who flourished in 2010-11 included the women’s basketball team winning the Patriot League Championship and advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history; the rifle team placed seventh at the NCAA Championship; the women’s lacrosse team advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second-straight season; intercollegiate sailing placed ninth at the ICSA Nationals; the baseball team won the Patriot League Regular Season and Tournament titles and participated in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2002; while the water polo, men’s cross country, men’s swimming & diving, men’s indoor track & field, women’s indoor track & field and women’s rowing all won conference titles. Gladchuk’s efforts have been recognized on a national level as well, as the Division IA Athletic Directors Association named him the 2005 Bobby Dodd Athletic Director of the Year. The award is presented in recognition of an athletic director’s support and commitment toward the successful advancement of the department, most specifically in the sport of football. Additionally, he was recognized by the Secretary of the Navy for his contributions and service to the Navy and the Naval Academy with the Superior Public Service Award to the Department of the Navy. Gladchuk has been able to parlay Navy’s athletic success into an exclusive television deal with CBS ports Network that has increased

Navy’s television exposure both in the United States and internationally. CBS Sports Network, the first 24-hour college sports network, televises every Navy home and select neutral site football games (excluding Notre Dame and Army which are televised nationally by CBS), as well as other Midshipmen men's and women's athletic events, original programming and documentaries centered on the storied Navy athletic program. The long-term, multi-media agreement includes internet streaming, broadband and video-on-demand rights and high definition rights. A major part of the agreement was that all home football games would be played on Saturday for the convenience of the Navy alumni. Navy sports are seen all over the world with the international distribution of Navy programming, especially to the troops serving abroad. Navy’s contract with CBS Sports Network runs through 2018. Gladchuk has also added radio giants WBAL (1090 AM) in Baltimore and WFED (1500 AM, 1050 AM, 820 AM) in Washington D.C./Northern Virginia to Navy’s radio network. WBAL Radio, which is also the home of the Ravens, is Maryland's dominant and most powerful radio station. Since 1925, generations of Marylanders have turned to WBAL Radio for news, weather, thought-provoking discussions and sports. As Maryland's only 50,000-watt AM station, WBAL's signal travels substantially further than any other station in the state. WFED Radio, which is also the home of the Washington Nationals, is a 50,000-watt station that will air a minimum of 10 regular-season football games. WFED is your source for federal news covering both the Federal Govern-

ment and those who do business with the government. Since being introduced as the Academy's 28th Director of Athletics on Sept. 4, 2001, Gladchuk has pressed forward on numerous fronts with energy and vision. From the hiring of Paul Johnson and Ken Niumatalolo as head football coaches to the renovation of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, Gladchuk has made improvements in several key areas that will prove more success on the athletic fields for years to come. Recent head coaching hires such as Bill Roberts in men’s swimming, John Morrison in women’s swimming, Paul Kostacopoulos in baseball, Keith Puryear in women’s tennis, Cindy Timchal, the all-time winningest women’s lacrosse coach in NCAA history, Stefanie Pemper, one of the all-time winningest Division III women’s basketball coaches, Dave Brandt, the all-time winningest soccer coach in NCAA history, Larry Bock, the all-time winningest coach in collegiate volleyball history, Ed DeChellis, the 2009 Big Ten Basketball Coach of the Year at Penn State, and men’s lacrosse coach Rick Sowell, who was a two-time America East Coach of the Year. During Gladchuk’s tenure at the Naval Academy, he has seen the Midshipmen win 75 conference titles, produce 137 All-Americans and 48 Academic All-Americans. Gladchuk has also worked tirelessly to bring back school spirit, working in conjunction with school officials to encourage midshipmen to attend events for all sports. He has embraced the local community and alumni base, and is an often-requested speaker, visiting areas all over the country as he shares the vision of the Naval Academy and the Naval Academy Athletic Association. Gladchuk’s biggest impact on the Naval Academy has been the $42 million renovation of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium where under his leadership the stadium was completely refurbished over a four-year time frame. The addition of 6,500 permanent seats on the sidelines and in the end zones, 32 luxury boxes, dropping the field eight feet and moving the sidelines closer, two video scoreboards, a memorial plaza, upgraded restroom and concession areas, a perimeter walking path, new lighting, a new sound system, landscaping the grounds and storm water management highlight the list of renovations. Gladchuk has worked closely with the city, county, state and neighborhood associations to ensure proper communication and sensitivity to issues that benefit both the NAAA and community at large. The NAAA was awarded the Green Star award by former Annapolis Mayor Ellen Moyer for commitment to the environment during the ongoing renovation of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Gladchuk and the NAAA have also teamed up with the Naval Academy Foundation to raise over $75 million in private giving for facilities

such as the Brigade Sports Complex (hockey and tennis), Max Bishop Stadium (baseball), varsity squash courts, various team locker rooms and a number of practice facilities. Other highlights during Gladchuk’s tenure at the Naval Academy include the recent renegotiation of the Army-Navy contract which resulted in over $46 million to the two schools over the next eight years, scheduling Maryland, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Army at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore to promote Navy football in the community, negotiating the extension of the Navy-Notre Dame football game television contract with CBS through 2018 and negotiating bowl deals with the Houston, Emerald, Poinsettia, Meineke Car Care, EagleBank, Texas, Armed Forces and Military Bowls. Gladchuk is heavily involved with NCAA and Patriot League committees. He recently was selected to serve on the NCAA Leadership Council, which is one of the highest NCAA appointments an athletic director can realize. The council helps set the Division I legislative agenda and advises the NCAA regarding major legislative issues being considered. The primary responsibility of the council is to identify those issues on the horizon that can impact Division I and intercollegiate athletics as a whole and spends much of its time planning for the future of Division I and helps set the course for the future. Gladchuk is also on the NACDA (National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors) Executive Committee and has served as the Chairman of the Executive Committee in the Patriot League and a member of the NCAA Olympic Sport Liaison Committee. Gladchuk came to the Naval Academy from the University of Houston, where he had been the Director of Athletics since July 18, 1997. Recognized as one of the nation’s top leaders in intercollegiate athletics management, he guided the Cougars to 19 Conference USA Championships, while making significant strides in the academic success of their student-athletes, gender equity and fiscal management. Before Houston, Gladchuk was the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Intramurals and Recreation for seven years at his alma mater, Boston College. Under Gladchuk, Boston College emerged as one of the NCAA’s elite programs of the 1990s winning numerous Big East and NCAA Championships. The school’s graduation rate for all student-athletes was over 90 percent and the Eagles won the College Football Association’s Academic Achievement Award for the highest graduation rates among all Division I schools in three of his last five years at Boston College. Gladchuk led the Alumni Stadium expansion effort, which resulted in a $35 million improvement to the football stadium. Prior to rejoining Boston College, Gladchuk served as AD at Tulane University from 1987-90. During his tenure, he directed the reinstatement of the Green Wave basketball program to Division I status. In addition, he oversaw the construction of new facilities for the athletics administration as well as baseball, track and field and tennis teams after a $25 million athletics campaign was successfully completed. From 1985-87, he served as Associate AD at Syracuse University, heading operations, NCAA compliance, financial aid and facility operations. Gladchuk lettered in football at Boston College and graduated with honors in business management in 1973. He earned a master’s in sports administration from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst in 1974, where he began his career in intercollegiate athletics, including serving for seven years as Director of General Physical Education, Assistant and Associate Athletic Director for the university. He also has served as Director of Athletics and head football coach for the New Hampton (Prep) School in New Hampshire prior to leaving for UMass. He and his wife, Kathy, have four children: John, a graduate of Loyola Marymount; Katie, a graduate of Boston College; Christie, a graduate of Trinity and Julie, a graduate of the University of North Carolina.
