      Dean College Athletic Department News

      12/14/2015


      Dean College is pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2016, current athletic director John Jackson will be moving into a newly created role, Director of NCAA Transition and Compliance. Head football coach and associate athletic director, Todd Vasey will assume leadership of the Athletic Department as the Dean College Athletic Director. And, Stephen Tirrell will replace Todd Vasey as the Head Football Coach.

      Earlier this year Dean College notified the NCAA of its intent and desire to explore NCAA Division III membership. The process includes several key strategic decisions that need to be made to ensure the transition is successful and that all requirements are met.

      For the past 35 years, John Jackson has spearheaded the growth and development of the athletic program at Dean College. His years of expertise will prove to be an asset during the College’s NCAA transition.

      “We are certain that John’s longtime commitment to student athletes, loyalty to Dean and network in the athletic profession, will guide us through this rigorous process,” said Dr. Paula Rooney, president of Dean College.

      John will also serve as the College’s Athletic Compliance Officer, an NCAA requirement.

      Coach Todd Vasey entered his 12th season this fall as the winningest head football coach in Dean College history. “Todd has achieved incredible success and instilled a sense of Bulldog Pride among the Dean Community, and most importantly, our student athletics,” said Dr. Rooney.

      Vasey’s tenure as coach, paired with years of experience as an athletic administrator, will make for a seamless transition to the new role.

      “I am extremely excited and grateful for the opportunity to lead the athletic department at Dean College,” said Vasey. “My goal is to build upon the many great things that John Jackson has put in place and make Dean College Athletics one of the finest Division III athletic programs in New England.”

      Moving to the Head Football Coach slot is Franklin resident, Stephen Tirrell. Prior to his new role in the department, Tirrell was the defensive line coach for the football team.

      “I am beyond excited to have the opportunity to lead the Dean College Football team during this new era,” said Tirrell. “My goal is to continue the success that has already been put in place by Coach Vasey.”
