Concordia head coach resigns?

Updated: May 28th – Concordia Stingers statement

According to multiple sources Patrick Donovan, Concordia Stinger interim Head Coach since January, has resigned from the position.  Donovan assumed the role of Head Coach after Mickey Donovan resigned to take the Special Teams coordinator position with the Montreal Alouettes.

Donovan had been the Stingers’ defensive co-ordinator and assistant head coach since 2014. His previous experience included five seasons with the McGill Redmen as an assistant coach and recruiting co-ordinator.

The native of Laconia, N.H. played five seasons with the Stingers, capping his career with back-to-back Presidents’ Trophy honours as the outstanding defensive player in Canadian university football (2005 and 2006). The two-time all-Canadian linebacker was also Quebec’s 2007 nominee for the outstanding male university athlete in Canada.

Statement from Concordia Stingers

The Concordia University Department of Recreation and Athletics would like to announce the departure of interim head coach Patrick Donovan, effective immediately.

Donovan joined the Concordia Stingers as assistant head coach and defensive co-ordinator in 2014. He assumed the interim position last January.

We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.

The process of finding a replacement is under way, and a new interim head coach will be announced shortly.
