He led the program for 37 years. He was the only coach in program history since they became a varsity sport in 1985.

“It has been a privilege to be the head football coach at Worcester State University for the past 37 years,” said Cullen. “It’s been so fulfilling to see how much the program and the university has grown in that time. I want to thank all the student athletes who shared their time here with us to build up this program.

“To all our alumni and staff who have supported us throughout these years, our 50th anniversary celebration at Homecoming was something to behold. As a proud alumnus, I will continue to support the University’s vision of excellence.”

As the head football coach, he guided the school to a 181-165 record during his tenure. The 181 wins are the 11th most on the active Division III wins list.

However, during his final season at the school, the Lancers did not win a single game. The school went 0-10 in his final campaign.

“We want to thank Brien for his leadership of our football program over the last 37 years,” Worcester State Director of Athletics Michael Mudd said. “During my six years at Worcester State, Brien has become a good friend of mine. He is so well respected around our campus community and has done a remarkable job representing our football program and the University during his time.

“Brien has developed hundreds of young men over his tenure, preparing them for the real world. Brien, his wife Mary, and their children, Casey and Kelly, have been an important part of Worcester State’s athletic family and the Cullen’s will always be a part of our Lancer family. We wish Brien the best in his retirement.”
