Brisson named Lycoming football team's offensive coordinator
WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – After two seasons at St. Lawrence University and one conference title, Scott Brisson will join the Lycoming College football staff as offensive coordinator, Lycoming head football coach and Director of Athletics Mike Clark announced on Monday, Jan. 23.
"We are very excited to have Scott join our staff as the offensive coordinator," Clark said. "He has acquired a tremendous amount in experience working with some outstanding coaching staffs at Franklin & Marshall and Lehigh, and has coordinated a Division III playoff offense at St. Lawrence. In addition, everyone that he has worked with him has praised his ability to recruit."
Brisson served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Saints, helping the team to the 2010 Liberty League title with a 5-1 conference mark. While at St. Lawrence, Brisson was responsible for all offensive play calling and coordinating the kickoff return unit. He also organized and coordinated all recruiting weekends for the program. On the field, he helped 10 Saints earn all-conference honors on the offensive side of the ball, while Marcus Robinson became the first running back since 1991 to rush for more than 1,000 yards in 2011.
Before St. Lawrence, Brisson spent two seasons at the Championship Subdivision's Lehigh University, where he served as a wide receivers and running backs coach. He helped the Mountain Hawks to two rivalry wins over Lafayette and developed two all-conference talents during his time in Bethlehem.
Brisson began his coaching career as the wide receivers coach at the Centennial Conference's Franklin & Marshall, where he helped one Diplomat wide-out to all-conference honors in two seasons with the program.
A 2006 graduate of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, Brisson was a four-year letterwinner and three-year starter at wide receiver for the Polar Bears. The Danbury, Conn., native earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in government and sociology.
The Warriors finished 8-2 overall and 6-2 in the MAC to finish in a tie for second in the MAC with Widener. The Warriors racked up their best record since the 2003 team finished 9-2 overall.
