McInerney Resigns as Head Football Coach

Central Connecticut head football coach Jeff McInerney announced his resignation on Monday.  McInerney coached the Blue Devils for eight seasons and posted a record of 48-41 during his time in New Britain.  HIs 48 wins are second in program history, and his teams won a pair of Northeast Conference championships in 2009 and 2010.

The following is a statement from McInerney:

"After eight seasons as head coach of the Blue Devils, I believe this is a good time to move onward in my career. So I want to announce today that I will be leaving CCSU at the end of December. I am sad to be leaving a place I have come to love and people I deeply admire. I thank President Jack Miller for the opportunity to coach so many outstanding student-athletes here. Whether we have won championships or not, these young men have always impressed me with their desire to excel, and they will all hold a special place in my heart. I want to thank, too, the Blue Devil Athletics office for its support in our shared mission of educating and preparing our student-athletes. And, lastly, I want to thank the assistant coaches, trainers, and others who have worked with me in enabling our young men to realize their dreams of playing collegiate Division I football. Fire up."

CCSU announced that a national search to find a new head football coach will begin immediately.
