Dan Hunt Hamilton, N.Y. - December 9, 2013 - Colgate University officially introduced Dan Hunt '92, G'95 as its 29th head football coach in a Tuesday afternoon news conference. Hunt was gracious in his acceptance speech, thanking his predecessor, Dick Biddle, and his family among others after assuming the title of Fred '50 and Marilyn Dunlap Head Football Coach.

Hunt is in his 18th season on the Colgate staff, and just finished his fourth as associate head coach and seventh as offensive coordinator. He has been the quarterbacks coach for the past 14 seasons.

Dick Biddle, the winningest head football coach in Colgate history, retired Monday after 18 stellar seasons and seven Patriot League titles. Biddle compiled a 137-73 (.652) overall record and won three of every four conference games he coached, finishing 81-27 (.750) against league competition.

Hunt began his Colgate tenure working with the tight ends in 1995 and 1996, and came from Springfield College, where he helped coach the wide receivers and tight ends. Hunt began his coaching career at Christian Brothers Academy in Albany, where he was in charge of the running backs and receivers. He returned to Springfield College in 1993 as head junior varsity coach.

Hunt was born in Canajoharie, N.Y. and graduated from Springfield College in 1992 with a degree in physical education after being three-year starter at tight end. Hunt would later earn his master’s degree in athletic administration from Springfield College in 1995.
