Cosgrove named Colby College football head coach

Jack Cosgrove, the University of Maine’s all-time winningest football coach, will become the head football coach at Colby College in Waterville.

With mixed emotions, Cosgrove, currently the senior associate director of athletics at UMaine, made the announcement Friday, Dec. 29.

“Athletics, particularly football at the University of Maine, has been my life’s work. I have played, coached and provided leadership here for 36 years,” said Cosgrove.

“The Cosgrove family, in its entirety, has graduated from here. To say that the university has impacted our lives would be an understatement. We can only hope that we have given to UMaine as much as it has given us.”
