Holy Cross Athletic Director, Kent Foushee commented, “When Coach Bronger informed us of his decision to step down at the end of the 2019 season to further enjoy his retirement, we felt it imperative to name a ‘Coach in Waiting’ so that our new coach could begin to develop relationships with future Cougars and our alumni. We feel Eric Dick is the right man to lead our program into the future. He has a great knowledge of the game of football, but most importantly, will serve as a great leader and role model for our young men. Bob Bronger commented, “I have known Eric for more than 15 years and have enjoyed watching him grow as a man and as a coach. He has the passion and work ethic to grow the great tradition that is Holy Cross football.”
Eric Dick commented, “I’ve never been more excited about an opportunity in my life. To be the head football coach at Holy Cross means everything to me. I will give my best day in and day out. To be a part of a program with so much tradition is something you dream about as a coach. I can’t wait to get started. Go Cougars”
