Former Georgetown head coach Bob Benson has been named the defensive coordinator at Pennsylvania, per a Penn news release.
"I'm thrilled to add someone of Bob's experience to our staff," said Penn coach Ray Priore, who succeeds the retiring Al Bagnoli following 16 seasons as the Quakers' DC. "We shared our first coaching jobs at Albany and he has found success at every level since that time. More importantly, he is of outstanding character, a great family man and excellent role model. I'm excited to be working with him again."
Benson was 72-64 at Georgetown from the 1993 through 2005 seasons. In the intervening years, he spent two years as a defensive assistant at Towson, six at the Colorado School of Mines, a Division II program and last year at Albany.
Six Georgetown players were honored by the Patriot League for its end of season awards, led by first team selections for senior DL Alec May and senior LB Nick Alfieri.
"Alec May is the most relentless player I have ever coached," coach Rob Sgarlata said in a Georgetown news release. "He plays at 100 miles an hour whether it is practice or a game. His being named to the First Team All-Patriot League is a great honor, in addition to being named to the Buck Buchanan Watch List and leading the nation in sacks. He impacted every game we played this season." "
"Nick Alfieri was our quarterback on the defensive side of the ball this season," Sgarlata said. "He made all of the checks and made sure we were in the right calls. It is an honor to have our No. 35 Joe Eacobacci Award winner named to the first team. Nick had been an impact player from the day he stepped on campus."
Fordham (ten on the first team offense, five on the first team defense, 20 total) had the most selections of any school in Patriot League history, followed by nine from Bucknell,
eight from Colgate, six from Georgetown, five from Lehigh, four from Lafayette and three from Holy Cross.
The Georgetown selections are as follows:
Alec May, DL
Nick Alfieri, LB
Joel Kimpela, RB
Mike Roland, OL
Jordan Richardson, DL
Ettian Scott, DB
Congratulations to all the awardees.
