Loose pro­moted at Army

The Morning Call - - SPORTS -

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.
