SACKVILLE, NB — Mount Allison University today, November 30, announced that Scott Brady, head coach of the Mount Allison Mounties football team, has resigned. Coach Brady has been at Mount Allison for the past twelve seasons, first as a student athlete with the Mounties and later as a member of the coaching staff. Brady was named the head coach of the Mounties in November of 2015. Brady has accepted another coaching position in his home province of Ontario.
Brady took over as head coach prior to the 2016 season after having served as defensive coordinator with former head coach Kelly Jeffrey. Brady and his Mounties defense helped the Mounties win back-to-back AUS championships in 2013 and 2014. As head coach, Brady guided the Mounties to their 4th straight Loney Bowl appearance in 2016. This season, the Mounties finished 4-4, narrowly missing the playoffs in the new 5 team AUS.
“The past 12 years at Mount Allison University have been an incredible experience and one that I will cherish forever,” mentioned Coach Brady. “I want to thank all of our current and past players and coaches for their incredible effort and trust over the past decade. I am truly proud of what we accomplished together. I also want to thank Kelly Jeffrey and Pierre Arsenault for their faith and belief in me and for granting me the incredible opportunity I had at Mount A to grow as a person and coach. I am truly thankful for the love and support my wife and I have received from the Sackville/Mount Allison community and I am proud of the program that our players have built over the past decade. Mount Allison will always have a special place in my heart and I trust that the program will be in good hands going forward."
“Coach Brady has been a great Mountie in every sense of the word and we are grateful for his many contributions,” commented Mount Allison’s Director of Athletics and Recreation, Pierre Arsenault. “Whether it be as a player, as an assistant coach and most recently as our head coach, Scott has helped build our current culture of success. We wish Scott well and we have every confidence that our program that Scott helped build will continue in an upward direction.”
A search for a new head coach will begin immediately. Mounties Offensive Coordinator Gaetan Richard will ensure the continued operations of the Mounties football program during the hiring process.
