Gabby Price will not be coaching the Husson University football team this fall.

The tenured coach, who has guided the Eagles for 12 seasons, including the past six campaigns, announced his retirement this morning after guiding the Green and Gold to an 8-3 record this past season, as well as the program’s fifth Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) conference title.

“I am honored to have had the job and have appreciated every minute that I have had working with so many outstanding people,” Price said in this morning’s release, which was seen on the Husson athletics website.

“I love coaching because of the players playing and those who have played. I am and have been proud of our players in so many ways. They have won some games and also been great to each other.  Everyone has a story and many of our players have had an incredible journey in so many different directions. The greatest teachers in my life have been our players and for that I love them and will always be indebted to them.”

Price departs the Bangor, Maine campus as the winningest coach in program history. He has compiled a 72-45 mark in 12 seasons (2002-08 and 2013-18), while leading the Eagles to four NCAA Tournaments (2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018) and two ECAC Bowl Games in 2008 and 2015.

In 2017, Price guided the Eagles to a school record 10 wins, along with its first-ever NCAA Tournament win over heavily-favored Springfield College. The win extended the Eagles’ season to end of November 2017 where they faced No. 5/7 Delaware Valley.

2017 was also the final year Price coached halfback John Smith, who ended his time in Maine with 7,205 rushing yards (fourth most rushing yards by a Division III tailback), 81 rushing touchdowns (31 scores in 2017) and 370 receiving yards on 34 receptions.

As noted in today’s release, Price has coached 78 student-athletes that have earned all-conference honors, along with 11 players that collected major end of the year awards.

Price was tabbed the ECFC Coach of the Year three times at Husson, including this past season, while being named New England DII/DIII Coach of the Year in 2017. He has coached 15 All-Americans and 61 student-athletes that earned ECFC All-Academic awards.

Said Director of Athletics Frank Pergolizzi, “It has been an honor and our privilege to work with Coach Price during these past six football seasons. His commitment to Husson University and to the students in our football program has been outstanding. His priority has consistently been the health and welfare of each of our student-athletes. They are fortunate to have had the opportunity to have been coached by him.”

The 2019 season will be coach Tim Murphy‘s 26th with the program – the tenured coach currently owns a 174-75 overall record with Harvard, but needs five wins to match Yale’s Carmen Cozza (179) for the most win in conference history.

Noontime Sports Final New England D3 Football Top 10 (Nov. 19th, 2018)

NS FINAL 2018 FB Poll 111918

By NoontimeSports.com | @NoontimeSports & @Noontime_FB 

Another season of New England D3 football has concluded with Framingham State securing the top spot in our final Noontime Sports Top 10 Poll.

The Rams, who captured the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) crown, returned to the postseason for the first time in three years where they provided a slew of challenges to Brockport State. Despite the outcome, the Rams certainly proved they have what it takes to compete with one of the best teams in New York D3 Football and should be back in the same position next fall.

Trinity College and MIT rounded out the top three spots, while Western New England and Amherst College secured the fourth and fifth positions, respectively. MIT made its second appearance in the NCAA Tournament in four seasons after capturing its initial New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) crown.

The Bantams of Trinity captured their third-straight New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) crown with back-to-back wins over Amherst and Wesleyan University.
