A new chapter of Curry College football began today with the hiring of Todd Parsons.
Parsons previously oversaw the Endicott College offense in 2019 and 2021 – he was also an assistant coach with the Gulls last season when they captured the Commonwealth Coast Football (CCC) crown.
“I am extremely excited to begin this new chapter,” Parsons said in a statement, via CurryAthletics.com. “I would like to thank President (Kenneth K.) Quigley, Athletic Director Vinnie Eruzione, and the search committee at Curry College for entrusting me with their football program.”
Parsons inherits a Colonels squad that concluded the 2021 season with a 3-6 overall record. Four years earlier, Curry concluded its 2017 campaign by winning eight of 11 contests while representing Commonwealth Coast Football in the New England Bowl.
“With the support of the administration, our student body, and our passionate alumni, we look forward to bringing Curry football back to a position of prominence,” said Parsons.
In his first season with the Gulls, Parsons, who served as the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, helped Endicott conclude its 2019 campaign with nine wins, including a New England Bowl victory over Dean College. Quarterback Joe Kalosky enjoyed his best season under center, posting career-bests in multiple categories, including touchdown passes (29), passing yards (2,433), and completion percentage (71.2%).
Last fall, Endicott’s offense finished second in the conference in points (301) and third in points per game (27.4). They averaged 28.8 points against conference foes.
“I want to thank everyone in the Endicott community for a memorable three years,” Parsons said, via ECGulls.com. “I especially want to thank Dr (Brian A.) Wylie and head coach Paul McGonagle for giving me the opportunity to join the Endicott Athletics department and football program. My time here with them, the other coaches, and the student-athletes helped prepare me, more than anything, to be able to take this step in my career.”
The new opportunity with Curry is Parsons’ first head coaching role after serving as a coordinator for multiple New England teams, including Brown University (Pass Game Coordinator/Quarterbacks Coach, 2014-17) and Assumption College (Special Teams Coordinator/Wide Receivers Coach, 2013-14).
Parsons began his coaching career as a graduate assistant with McDaniel College after graduating in 2007 from Averett University.
Curry’s 2022 season will kick off on Saturday, September 3 when they welcome MIT to Milton, Massachusetts.
