CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Jeremy Bandy has joined the Harvard University football coaching staff as the team's offensive line coach in an announcement by Tim Murphy, the Thomas Stephenson Family Head Coach for Harvard Football.
Bandy will coordinate recruiting efforts for the Crimson in the New England states as well as Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland and Delaware.
Bandy comes to Harvard after spending six years on Tim Gilmore's staff at Holy Cross, four of them as the offensive line coach.
In 2011, Bandy's offensive line had two selections on the All-Patriot League team including 2Mike McCabe, who was also an FCS Athletic Directors Association Academic All-Star pick. Long snapper Matt Fava was also named to the national all-freshman team by College Sports Journal.
In 2009, four out of the five starters on offensive line earned All-Patriot League honors as the Crusaders won the league title and advanced to the national playoffs. In 2008, two of Bandy's players earned all-league honors. During his first two seasons with the Crusaders, Bandy served as the tight ends coach, helping to guide the career of first team All-Patriot League selection Ryan McGuire.
Bandy came to Holy Cross from Allegheny College, where he served as the offensive line coach for four seasons. Allegheny won the 2003 national championship and in 2004, he guided an offensive line which paved the way for the Gators to rush for 1,657 yards and 16 touchdowns.
A 2001 graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College, Bandy played both center and guard on the offensive line for the Yellow Jackets. During his undergraduate days at Baldwin-Wallace, he also served as a recruiting assistant in the football office.
