Frostburg to name Sweeney football coach


Ed Sweeney, who led Division III Dickinson (Pa.) College to four playoff appearances in eight years, will be introduced tomorrow as Frostburg State football coach. He will replace Mike McGlinchey, who announced his retirement in October.

Sweeney is the 10th football coach at Frostburg. He went 58-23-3 at Dickinson from 1985-92.

"Ed's record at Dickinson proves that he knows what it takes to be successful at the Division III level," said Frostburg athletic director Loyal K. Park.

The Bobcats are 54-14-2 (.794) over the past seven seasons and have earned five postseason berths. McGlinchey, who has been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, has coached the past four years, leading Frostburg to its first playoff appearance and a school-record 10 victories in 1993.
