Loose promoted at Army
Former Lafayette College defensive coordinator John Loose has been promoted to the same post at Army.
Loose had coached the Black Knights safeties. He replaces Jay Bateman, who left West Point to become defensive coordinator at North Carolina.
Loose served as interim defensive coordinator during the Armed Forces Bowl, a 70-14 Army win over Houston. Army registered 10 sacks in the rout.
Loose was defensive coordinator at Lafayette from 2000 to 2013.
His Lauren's First and Goal Football Camp, held at Lafayette the first Sunday in June, remains a Lehigh Valley staple. Named in honor of his daughter, the camp has raised more than $2 million to provide financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services for families living with pediatric cancer.
