NORTHEAST FOOTBALL CONFERENCE
Dan Basil has been named ASA’s head football coach. Basil, who had been the associate head coach and defensive coordinator, replaces Joe Osovet, who accepted a position at the University of Tennessee.
Basil enters his third season at ASA, coming off a 9-1 season in his first year as associate head coach.
“It’s going to be a bit different this year. Under coach Oz (Osovet) we were more offensive minded. We’re going to shift a bit into a defensive-minded team,” Basil. “We were sophomore heavy last season, especially on defense. All of our roster spots are open. We’re just doing what we can to put these kids in positions to be successful.”
The Avengers, who had eight sophomores starting on defense in 2017, ranked second nationally in total yards allowed and in points allowed per game and fourth in sacks and passing yards allowed per game.
