“We appreciate and thank Paul for his seven years of service as head coach of our football program,” McFarland said.  “After much consideration, we feel it is in the university’s best interest to move in a new direction.  We will seek a candidate who can build on the winning tradition of Bloomsburg University football.”

To begin his final season, the team went 1-1 in its first two games with a loss to the Stonehill Skyhawks. The team then win against the Edinboro Fighting Scots.

Bloomsburg then went on a four-game losing streak. Following the four-game losing streak, the team rebounded with three-straight wins.

In its final two games, the team lost to Shepherd Rams, before winning its season-finale against the Fighting Scots.

Before being named head coach, he was the school’s defensive coordinator for 16 seasons under Danny Hale. He also worked at Indiana (Pa.) for two seasons.

He also worked for the Gannon Golden Knights and the Northeastern Huskies. Darragh also served as a graduate assistant with the Temple Owls.
