He earned both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Springfield College. Before coming to New Canaan he coached several New York high school teams and was an assistant football coach for Boston College.
In recent years, two of New Canaan’s football players, Zach Allen and Lucas Niang have made it into the NFL, with Niang on the Kansas City Chief’s Superbowl teams.
