Worcester State Lancers have named Adam Peloquin as the team’s new head football coach for the 2020 season, according to FootballScoop. His appointment comes hours after former coach Brien Cullen retired following 37-years as the leader of the program.
Peloquin is the second head coach in program history. Cullen had been the first varsity coach since the program began in 1985.
He has been on the staff for the last eight seasons. However, for the last three seasons, he was the team’s offensive coordinator.
Peloquin graduated from the school in 2012. He played for Cullen, where he was an offensive guard.
He takes over a program that went 0-10. They were 0-5 at home and 0-5 on the road.
The team also lost all eight games in conference play. The team averaged 11.2 points per game, while they allowed 34.9 points per contest.
The most points the Lancers scored in a game was 28 on homecoming. However, they lost by 14 points with a 42-28 loss to the Western Connecticut State Colonials.
They did have one close game that they had a chance to win, while the others were out of hand. The Lancers were defeated 12-10 by the Becker College Hawks.
On the season, the team gave up 349 points. The Lancers on the other hand only scored 112 points.
Now, with Peloquin calling the shots, he will have to make the hard decisions moving forward. He will attempt to improve on the winless season and produce more scoring during the 2020 season.
