WATERVILLE – It’s the beginning of a new era in at Colby College, where Jack Cosgrove was formally introduced as head football coach Monday afternoon.
Cosgrove spent 23 years as head coach for the University of Maine football team before stepping into a new role in Maine Athletics in 2015, and announced his intentions to leave Dec. 29.
“It’s about excellence,” Cosgrove said of his move to Colby. “And it’s about achievements in all parts of Colby’s everyday life as a college. Its students, its athletes, its staff, its coaches, and they’re building and growing. It’s just something I really wanted to be a part of.”
Maine won three conference titles during his run in Orono, though he will be in charge of a rebuild at Colby. The Mules went 1-8 last season, and won just three games the season prior.
