New Britain, CT (SportsNetwork.com) - Central Connecticut State named
University of New Haven football coach Pete Rossomando as the 13th head coach
in Blue Devils history on Wednesday.
Rossomando, who will be introduced at a news conference on campus Friday,
signed a four-year agreement.
"His football pedigree is widely respected, and he has honored and validated
that pedigree with his coaching record," CCSU athletic director Paul
Rossomando turned New Haven into an NCAA Division II power while compiling a
42-13 record the last five seasons. He led the Chargers to three consecutive
Northeast-10 Conference titles from 2010-12. They advanced to the Division II
quarterfinals in 2011, and he was named the division's national coach of the
year in 2012.
Rossomando takes over for Jeff McInerney, who announced his resignation in
November after eight seasons with the FCS program. The Blue Devils were 4-8
this past season, including 2-4 in the Northeast Conference.
