He and his coaching staff captured the school’s 11th MIAA title in 2014. His 43 wins in six seasons is the best start of any coach in team history. Last season, Adrian fashioned a 7-3 overall ledger (4-2 MIAA, T-3rd), ending 2015 with a four-game winning streak. Sophomore all-region running back Emmanuel Stewart headlined eight Bulldogs who made All-MIAA teams, plus Dylan Dunn who earned the conference’s Pete Schmidt Memorial Senior Scholar-Athlete Award.

The Bulldogs started the season with a 7-0 record and were ranked as high as 16th nationally by the AFCA. The team’s first win of the season saw Adrian travel to Husson University, setting a school record for points in a 77-7 victory. The team also had two very exciting road wins: 1714 at Augustana on a last-second field goal and snapping a long losing streak against conference rival and 17th-ranked Trine, 26-7. The Bulldogs led the MIAA in scoring offense (32.5 points per game) and scoring defense (14.2 ppg) in 2011. Deere’s defense was once again stellar by ranking seventh nationally in pass efficiency defense (89.28). The team allowed 124.9 yards per game on the ground and ranked 15th nationally in total defense (263.10 ypg). The aggressive nature of the defense was also highlighted by finishing sixth nationally in tackles for loss per game (8.8).

In Deere’s first season, AC featured one of the strongest schedules in school history in 2010 and the Bulldogs went 5-5 overall (4-2 MIAA, T-2nd). Adrian had four first-team AllMIAA players and five more make the second team all-conference. The team ranked second in MIAA total defense (308.2 yards per game), turnover margin (+4) and rushing defense (124.5 ypg).

Deere was a four-year letterman for the Bulldogs who won a MIAA crown in 1988.
