Cornell Football has a bright future ahead!

David Archer '05, a former Big Red captain as a player and architect of the Big Red's recent recruiting success, has been named The Roger J. Weiss '61 Coach of Cornell Football by Andy Noel, the Meakem-Smith Director of Athletics and Physical Education. Archer becomes the 27th head coach in school history and takes over for Kent Austin, who resigned in December to become vice president of football operations, general manager and head football coach of the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Archer will be formally introduced to the Cornell community on Friday at 2 p.m. at a press conference in the Hall of Fame Room in Schoellkopf Memorial Hall. The event will be broadcast at no charge on Cornell RedCast.

"I am incredibly honored to be named the Roger J. Weiss '61 Head Coach of Football at Cornell University," Archer said. "Cornell is such a special place that changed my life. I can think of no better job in the country than being Cornell's head football coach. To me, Cornell football is all about the people. I am excited to work for President David Skorton, Vice President Susan Murphy and Director of Athletics Andy Noel. I am just as excited to serve our outstanding alumni, players and supporters. Go Big Red!
