BEVERLY, Mass. – Endicott head coach Paul McGonagle has announced his football coaching staff for the 2018 season. Rob Matey will take over as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, while Sean Golden will hold roles as defensive coordinator and defensive backs coach. Meanwhile, Jack Dustin will serve as the Gulls' defensive line coach/strength and conditioning coach, and Joe Hook will guide the offensive line. Lastly, Bob Holmes returns to Endicott as the program's linebackers coach. 

"We are excited about the staff we have assembled for the 2018 season," said McGonagle. "All five coaches bring invaluable experience to Endicott as coaches and recruiters but they also will serve as great mentors for our student-athletes. Along with that, Jack, Sean, Bob, Joe, and Rob also know what it takes to develop a championship program and I am eager to begin that process with them."
