Coach Dan Hunt talks about Colgate's Zone Read and the techniuqes and drlls he uses to perfect it.
Dan Hunt at the top of the Patriot League coaching ladder has a nice ring to it. In five short seasons, Hunt not only has become the league’s marquee sideline general but he also now stands as the dean of Patriot League coaches. More impressively, three of the last four seasons at Colgate have ended with championship trophies residing in Hamilton.
The 2018 campaign was one for the history books:
- Colgate went 10-2, earning the fourth 10-win season in program history
- Won the Patriot League at 6-0 for its 10th conference title
- Led the nation in scoring defense, total defense and pass efficiency defense
- Tied an FCS record with five shutouts
- Earned the Patriot League’s first top-eight seed in the NCAA playoffs
- Hosted a playoff game for the first time since 2003
- Advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals for the second time in four years.
Hunt already is mentioned in the company of Colgate coaching legends. He holds the endowed coaching position of the Fred ’50 and Marilyn Dunlap Head Football Coach and he just won his third Patriot League Coach of the Year Award, an award recently named for one of his mentors, Coach Dick Biddle. Colgate wrapped up its 10th Patriot League title with a 41-0 whitewash at Fordham and its sixth perfect record in conference with a 48-6 triumph at Lehigh. The Raiders outscored their 2018 Patriot League competition 223-26, or by an average of 37-4, and they carry an 11-game conference winning streak into 2019. Hunt is now 24-6 against the Patriot League.
