ATHENS, W. Va. – Concord University head football coach Garin Justice announced Thursday that defensive line coach Pat Dawson will also serve as Concord's recruiting coordinator in 2013.
Dawson is entering his third season as a member on the Mountain Lions' staff. In his two years as Concord's defensive line coach, Dawson has guided four All-West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honorees.
In 2012, Dawson oversaw a defensive line that helped Concord rank 14th in the nation in total defense, 11th in scoring defense and seventh in passing defense. CU also posted the WVIAC's fifth-best run defense.
Prior to coming to Concord, Dawson began his coaching career as an assistant at Greensburg Central Catholic, his alma mater, during the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Dawson helped coach GCC to its first WPIAL title in 2009.
Dawson played college football at Toledo University where he was a four-year member of the Rockets' football team as an offensive lineman. He graduated from Toledo with a degree in Sports Management.
Concord will begin its season at Lenior-Rhyne on Sept. 7. CU closes out its spring practice season Thursday night at 7:00 p.m. in the annual Maroon and Gray game at Callaghan Stadium.
