Monmouth University as a new quarterbacks coach. And his name is Jimmy Robertson.

Robertson joins the Hawks for the upcoming 2022 season after leading FDU Florham to a 7-4 record in his first and only season as the head coach of the Devils. He was named the program’s head coach on February 12, 2020, after spending five seasons as the squad’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.  

“The opportunity to have been (a) head football coach at FDU was a true honor,” Robertson said, via FDUDevils.com. “My love for our players, coaches and this program runs deep, and I will forever cherish being a part of the first bowl win in school history.”

Under Robertson, the Devils enjoyed one of their best seasons in program history as they matched the 1993 squad with seven wins while winning their first-ever Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) bowl against Saint Vincent College.

Robertson was named the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) Coach of the Year and was joined by six of his players on the league’s end-of-season team, including Kenny Hands, a D3Football.com All-American that established a new single-season record for sacks with 13.5 for 73 yards.

In addition to coaching the Monmouth quarterbacks, Robertson will also serve as the team’s pass game coordinator — look for him to make an immediate impact on Tony Muskett, a two-time first-team All-Big South quarterback that threw for 2,651 yards and 25 touchdowns last fall.  

“Coach Robertson is a great addition to our coaching staff,” Monmouth head coach Kevin Callahan said, via MonmouthHawks.com. “His experience working with the quarterback position and his team as a head coach complement the strengths of our offense coaches and make him a great fit for Monmouth.”

Van Curen will serve as the team’s interim head coach, but a national search for the next leader of the Devils will begin soon.
