Holy Cross names Chesney football coach

(STATS) - After leading Assumption to the best five-year stretch in program history, Bob Chesney will try to deliver similar success as Holy Cross' new coach.

Chesney, who became the school's 28th coach on Thursday, is charged with lifting a program that has posted only one winning season in the last six years.

"Bob is a rising star in the coaching profession, and his track record of head coaching success at multiple programs speaks for itself," Holy Cross athletic director Nathan Pine said. "He is a familiar face within the Worcester community already, and we know he will be a great fit for our culture and vision at Holy Cross."
