His tenure in New Haven lasted 12 years and resulted in two Ivy League championships. From AP-
Yale football coach Jack Siedlecki announced he is retiring after 12 years and two Ivy League championships, but he’ll be staying at the university to become assistant athletic director.
Siedlecki was 70-47 and 47-37 in the conference during his tenure in New Haven, which included sharing league championships with Brown in 1999 and Princeton in 2006.
The Bulldogs were 9-0 heading into last year’s final game and looking for their first perfect season since 1960, but lost to Harvard. Yale finished this season 6-4, including 4-3 in the conference and a 10-0 loss to Harvard in the 125th edition of “The Game.”
Siedlecki took the helm after Hall of Fame coach Carm Cozza retired in 1996 after 32 seasons. Only Cozza was head coach at Yale longer.
“I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished over 12 years,” Siedlecki said in a statement Wednesday. “I have been given an opportunity to stay affiliated with Yale Athletics for the balance of my career, and I deeply appreciate that.”
It wasn’t immediately clear Wednesday why Siedlecki was retiring.
So he can be assistant athletic director? Where did I read that before?
