Football Scoop and the New Haven Register's Portal 31 blog are both reporting unnamed sources saying Don Brown will be Yale's new football coach. Brown is the former Dartmouth defensive coordinator who later served as an assistant at Yale and as head coach at UMass, Northeastern and Plymouth State. He also guided Yale to the EIBL baseball title as interim coach. He has a head coaching record of 95-45.
The Hartford Courant also has a story that quotes Paul Pasqualoni at UConn, where Brown is the DC.
Green Alert Take: I've known Don since he was an assistant coach at Hartford High School here in the Upper Valley and then at Dartmouth and he's top-notch. I hope the reports are true because he'll only make Ivy League football better on the field and off.
