Yale Legend Carm Cozza Dies at 87

The Yale community lost a great one today with the passing of Carmen Cozza.  Cozza’s incredible Yale career began in 1963 and just four years later, Cozza would lead the Bulldogs to their first of ten conference championships under his reign.  Cozza compiled a record of 179-119-5 while at Yale with 135 of those victories against Ivy League foes.  In more recent memory, Cozza teamed up with Ron Vaccaro to become the voices of Yale football on weekly WELI broadcasts.  His passion for Yale and intimate knowledge of the game were truly inspirational to all of us.

  1. No man has ever looked better in a blue Yale baseball cap than Carm Cozza.

    Favorite pre-game advice. “Keep your composure…..but let yourself go.” The more I think about that over the years it was simple but brilliant, and much more complex than seven words.

  2. Actually, Carm came to Yale in 1963 as an assistant to John Pont before being named head coach 53 years ago this month. RIP
