John has been a virtual bridge between athletics and academics since he arrived at Saint Michael's in 1974. A highly-accredited and very popular professor of economics, and Chair of the Department, John began his association with the College's athletic department in 1975, when he joined the football coaching staff. A football star as an undergraduate at Colby College, he remained on the football staff here through the 1979 season. He again entered the coaching ranks five years later, when he became the assistant women's lacrosse coach, and together with Todd Wadsworth led the program to a 23-6 mark from 1984-86. During that stretch, the Knights also made the first post-season tournament appearance in the program's history! He has served as Chair of the Hall of Fame Committee and Athletic Advisory Council (twice), and on two Athletic Task Forces. A long-time NCAA Faculty Representative, John has received seven awards for excellence in teaching, a yearbook dedication, and the Gerald Dupont Award.
