The Husson University Football program announces the addition of offensive coordinator, Kevin Canty, to the coaching staff. Canty brings a wealth of experience to the Eagles and will make an immediate impact on the football program's offense.
"I would like to thank Husson's Athletic Director, Bob Reasso, and Head Football Coach, Sean Murphy, for this wonderful opportunity to be a part of something special," said Canty. When asked about the team's prospects for the 2011 season, Canty stated, "I think there are great young men that are coming back as well as some that are being recruited. We will turn some heads in the ECFC. I'm excited to get here and start implementing a new system that will bring a lot of fun and excitement to the Husson fans and community."
Canty has recently coached highly competitive Division II and Division III football programs. Prior to accepting the job at Husson, Canty was the offensive coordinator at Lake Forest College. In the 2010 season, the offensive line cut sacks allowed in half and more than doubled rushing yards gained from the previous year. Canty also coached at the College of St. Scholastica and his alma mater, Division II Wingate University.
Head Football Coach Sean Murphy had this to say about Canty: "We are thrilled to have Kevin joining our family. He is an innovative, ambitious, and talented coach who will make an immediate impact on the growth of our program. He embodies the character and talent that is critical for this position and will serve as a great mentor to our student-athletes."
Canty has coached multiple Academic All-Americans and South Atlantic Conference Honor Student Athletes, as well as 12 All-Conference, 2 All-Region, and one All-American student-athlete. Canty was an outstanding college football player at Wingate University. He was an All-American and a starter in the East Coast Senior Bowl Game.
"We are incredibly fortunate to be able to add Kevin Canty to our football staff" stated Director of Athletics Bob Reasso. "He was a great player and has a great deal of experience as a coach and offensive coordinator."
