New DC in the House
Columbia has found its new defensive coordinator.
FootballScoop is reporting Chris Woods will come to us after three years coaching the defensive line at Bryant College. Before that, he coached linebackers at Harvard in the 2007 season when the Crimson won the Ivy title.
He also has head coaching experience, having that job at Stonehill College and Mansfield College.
Woods is a 1991 graduate of Davidson.
Once again, I will make Mr. Woods’ top job very clear:
STOP THE RUN!
Good luck Chris! We’re all behind you.
But seriously, stop the run!
First team California All-State, (small schools), DB/RB Alec Fisher from La Jolla Bishop’s High School is coming to Columbia.

Here are some highlights of Fisher on YouTube.
