“Tom’s decision to step down reflects a true ‘team first’ mindset and a genuine love for Lehigh and Lehigh football,” Lehigh Dean of Athletics Joe Sterrett said. “Although he has a Penn degree, he is a Lehigh guy and he truly wants what is best for our football program and he continues to believe in the future of Lehigh football. I am deeply grateful for the substantial work he and his staff have done in developing a roster full of dedicated and talented football players, who also have performed at unprecedented levels in the classroom. The efforts of Tom and his staff have given the football program a stronger foundation and will provide the next coach with a great opportunity for success.”
