Westminster's Hand resigns

Westminster College football coach Jeff Hand resigned Monday after nine seasons with the Titans.

A native of Ellwood City, Hand compiled a 34-55 record, including a 4-6 mark this season. Hand also coached Westminster's all-time leading passer, all-time leading receiver, the fourth all-time leading pass rusher and the fifth all-time leading rusher, as well as 45 all-conference selections.

“I thank Jeff Hand for all of his hard work and effort during his tenure as head football coach at Westminster, and I have been especially appreciative of his commitment to the college, to Titan athletics and to the student-athletes in our football program,” Westminster athletic director Jim Dafler said. “I wish Jeff only the best in his future endeavors.”

Prior to Westminster, Hand spent four seasons (2001-04) as the head coach at Waynesburg, where he compiled a 24-17 record and guided the Yellow Jackets to the PAC championship in 2003 and the school’s only appearance in the NCAA Division III playoffs.

Westminster is one of two PAC schools that will have new head coaches next season. Saint Vincent fired Bob Colbert last week after the Bearcats lost 21 games in a row.
