FDU-Florham has let head football coach Brian Surace go on Wednesday. He was at the school for nine seasons.
During his tenure as the school’s football leader, he guided the school to a 22-69 record. He has been replaced on an interim basis by Jimmy Robertson.
In his final season at the school, Surace guided the school to a 3-7 record. Two of the three wins came at home.
The Devils went 2-3 at home, while the team went 1-4 on the road. FDU-Florham also was 2-6 on conference play.
Their season began with a 56-48 win over the United States Merchant Marine Academy Mariners on Sept. 7. Following that win, the team went on a three-game win streak.
Their next win came on Oct. 5 against the Albright Lions in a 50-45 wins. The team then went through another losing streak, a four-game losing streak from Oct. 12th through Nov. 2nd.
In their season-finale, the school won 84-56 in Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day over the Alvernia Wolves.
Before Robertson’s new appointment, he was the school’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for five seasons.
“I am beyond grateful for this opportunity,” said Robertson. “We have a special group of players here at FDU and I am excited about the future of this program. We are full steam ahead on the recruiting trail and our coaching staff has hit the ground running.”
