Guelph names interim head coach after MacNeill leaves

GUELPH, ON – Kevin MacNeill is leaving the University of Guelph as head coach of the football program to explore other opportunities.  Coach MacNeill has been with the football program since 2010, starting first as a defensive coordinator.  He assumed the head coach position in 2017 after serving as interim head coach for one year.

“Coach MacNeill has been instrumental in helping our football program become one of the best in the province, and we wish him well,” said Scott McRoberts, Director of Athletics.

Todd Galloway has been appointed interim coach.  Galloway has been with the program for seven seasons.  During his tenure as offensive coordinator, the Gryphons had a 31-8 regular season record and a 5-5 playoff record, including three Yates Cup appearances and an historic Yates Cup Championship title in 2015. Galloway has also served as head of recruitment for the past two years.

“With more than a decade of diverse coaching experience at various levels, including U SPORTS, high school and varsity leagues, Todd’s proven to be a highly successful and intelligent coach,” McRoberts said. “It will be a seamless transition for both the coaching staff and the players.”

Galloway said he is honoured to be named interim head football coach. “I believe we have one of the strongest programs in the province, with a team of amazing young men.  I am looking forward to watching them evolve into successful contenders this fall.”
