FITCHBURG -- Paul McGonagle is wise beyond his football years.
The 31-year-old McGonagle was named the new head football coach of the Falcons by the Fitchburg State College Athletic Department on April 9 of this year.
"I am very thankful to both President (Robert V.) Antonucci and (Athletic Director) Sue Lauder for the opportunity to become the head football coach at Fitchburg State College," McGonagle said in a press release on Fitchburg State's athletics Web site.
...
"(There are) a couple reasons," McGonagle said about why he chose to coach the Falcons.
...
During his playing days as a Wildcat, McGonagle played with a quarterback by the name of Tim Couch, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft.
...
Before graduating from Kentucky in 1999 with a bachelor's degree in sports management, McGonagle would sit in on the meetings of the Kentucky coaching staff.According to McGonagle, he "would sit back and absorb everything I could by all the great coaches I was surrounded by."
"It's just something I've always wanted to do," McGonagle said about becoming a coach."When I started playing Little League, my dad was my Little League coach and knew from then on I wanted to be a coach.There's a bunch of places I've worked where I learned a lot from coaches, too.I don't really think it has anything to do with the SEC.My best coach was my father and I learned that in Little League."
Following a disappointing 4-5 season in 2006, Fitchburg State will make the transition from Steve Haverty to McGonagle.
...
Carmy Cesaire is the only coach returning coach from the Haverty era, as the rest of the assistant coaches were hand-picked by McGonagle.
...
One of the first changes made by McGonagle is instituting a mandatory conditioning program.
...
There are 22 open spots, according to McGonagle.
...
"(McGonagle) doesn't know anybody and everybody starts off on a fair game.There's going to be no favorites."
Before helping Bentley to its first conference title, McGonagle played a key role in Stony Brook University's first Northeast championship as the team's offensive coordinator.
His coaching career began at Northeastern University, followed by coaching positions at Bucknell University and Eastern Kentucky, where he earned his master's degree in sports administration.
Even at such a young age for a head coach, McGonagle does bring a loaded resume to his new position.
...
"It's going to be fun, entertaining and competitive," McGonagle said about the type of football fans can expect.
Paul McGonagle emerged as ...
www.sentinelandenterprise.com, 10 April 2007 [cached]
Paul McGonagle emerged as the top choice from a pool of over 70 candidates, according to Fitchburg Sports Information Director Mike DePlacido.
...
"I'm very excited about the opportunity," said McGonagle, "first and foremost, to work for the college and the community, and the opportunity to become the next football coach at Fitchburg."
McGonagle will replace former Fitchburg State coach Pat Haverty, who resigned from the team during the offseason and recently accepted a coaching position with the Continental Indoor Football League's New England Surge.
...
"Paul brings to the position exactly the combination of leadership, knowledge and enthusiasm that we look for in a coach," Fitchburg State President Robert V. Antonucci was quoted as having said in the press release.
...
Since graduating in 1999, McGonagle has held coaching positions at Northeastern University, Eastern Kentucky University, Bucknell University, Stony Brook University and Bentley College.
McGonagle spent his last two seasons at Division II Bentley, serving as offensive coordinator under the legendary Peter Yetten.
...
It was clear, Yetten said, that it was time for McGonagle to take over his own program.
...
McGonagle said that one of the things that drew him to Fitchburg State was the way the school supports its athletic programs.He said that the recently constructed Elliot Field complex is a sign that the school cares about its student-athletes.
In fact, McGonagle went on to say, he was impressed by the way the school even gave the players a voice in the interviewing process.McGonagle and other candidates were individually asked to sit down with the team and discuss their plans for the program, as well address any questions the players had for them.
...
During his playing days at Kentucky, McGonagle said, he experienced a head coaching change from a player's perspective.The memory of what that was like, he said, helped him connect with the current Falcons.
"I went through it as a player," McGonagle explained.
...
McGonagle said that he had moved back to the Northeast to settle down into family life with his wife and two daughters.Getting his first shot as a head coach in his home state, he said, made the experience that much sweeter.
"I really love the atmosphere of small college, New England football," he said."That Saturday atmosphere is special."
With the support of the school, the players and, presumably, the Falcon fans, all that's left for McGonagle now is to prove himself on the field.It's a challenge the new coach is welcoming with open arms.
