Robert L. Blackman Head Football Coach
Buddy Teevens

Eugene F. (Buddy) Teevens III, who as a player led Dartmouth to the 1978 Ivy League championship and as a coach led Dartmouth football to back-to-back Ivy League titles in 1990 and 1991, returned as the head coach of the Big Green football program in 2005 and won another title in 2015.

Teevens holds the Robert L. Blackman Endowed Coaching Position, named in memory of Bob Blackman, who coached Dartmouth from 1955 to 1970, and created through the gift of Henry M. (Hank) Paulson ‘68, an outstanding offensive tackle who played for Blackman from 1965-67.

"It is always a treat to have former students of mine back in town. His accomplishments here as a student, an athlete and a coach, combined with his experience nationally and knowledge of the Ivy League, make him the ideal person to lead Dartmouth football."

~ Former Dartmouth President James Wright

In addition to restoring Dartmouth’s rich football tradition, Teevens has been an integral force in a series of major improvements to Dartmouth’s football facilities, including installation of a FieldTurf surface on Memorial Field for the 2006 season, the opening of the new Floren Varsity House in 2007 that includes training, dressing and meeting facilities, and the addition of lights prior to the 2011 campaign. Dartmouth will also be replacing the West stands and press box after the 2014 season for a more comfortable setting to watch the Big Green.

Teevens succeeded John Lyons at the helm of the Big Green and is the 21st coach in the program’s 125-year history. Teevens was Dartmouth’s 19th coach during his first tenure.

Highly regarded in football circles, Teevens has been an integral part of the famed Manning Passing Academy since its inception 20 years ago. He serves as an associate director of the camp, overseeing all aspects of the on-field operation and coaching staff. He also has been on panels for “Practice Like Pros” to extol the virtues of cutting down on full-contact practices by focusing on technique, which in turn limits injuries suffered in practice and in games.

Born October 1, 1956, Teevens earned an A.B. degree in history from Dartmouth in 1979. An honorable mention All-America quarterback in 1978, he led the Big Green to the Ivy title that year. He was named the Ivy League and ECAC Player of the Year and played in the Blue-Gray Classic. Co-captain of the 1978 team (6-3, 6-1 in Ivy games), Teevens was the squad’s most valuable player. He also lettered in hockey, helping Dartmouth to a third-place finish at the 1979 NCAA championship. He was voted the Alfred W. Watson Trophy as Dartmouth’s outstanding athlete.

The name Teevens is intertwined through Dartmouth athletic history. Buddy’s father, the late Eugene F. Teevens II ‘52, was a hockey letterwinner. His younger brother, Shaun ‘82, was a two-sport athlete in football and hockey and also a recipient of the Watson Trophy. A sister, Moira ‘87, captained the women’s cross country and track teams and earned All-Ivy and All-East recognition as a runner.

A native of Pembroke, Massachusetts, Teevens and his wife, Kirsten, have two children: Lindsay lives in Lebanon, New Hampshire, with her husband Matt, daughter Caroline and son Jack, while Buddy Jr. lives in Hanover with his wife McKeanna, son Eugene V and daughter Leila.

Recruiting area: Florida, Georgia

Sammy McCorkle, a 1996 graduate and three-time letterwinner at the University of Florida, is entering his 14th season on the staff, having arrived in 2005 with Coach Teevens. From 2011-13, McCorkle’s pass defense was the Ivy’s stingiest, and the Big Green have been first or second in passes defended in each of the last five years.

During his tenure with the team, he has coached five players who have earned All-Ivy League First Team honors a total of eight times, and no less than 18 players that have received All-Ivy honors a combined 29 times.

The 2015 Dartmouth defense led the nation in fewest points allowed and red zone defense, plus was fourth in total defense as the Big Green won a share of its first conference crown in 19 years. Cornerback Vernon Harris ’16 became the first player in Dartmouth history to start all 40 games, earning a spot on the All-Ivy League First Team in 2014 and ’15, and two-time co-captain Garrett Waggoner garnered first-team honors as a safety in both 2012 and ’13.

McCorkle mentored one of the finest cornerbacks in Dartmouth history in Shawn Abuhoff ’12, who earned first-team All-Ivy honors in both 2010 and 2011.

In his first season on staff, three members of the Green’s defensive secondary in 2005 — Steve Jensen, Mike Ribero and Ian Wilson — earned All-Ivy recognition as Dartmouth ranked first in the league in pass defense and 14th in the FCS.

In 2003-04, McCorkle was the head coach at Martin County High in Stuart, Fla. In 2003, he led Martin County to its best record in 10 years.

McCorkle previously coached at the University of Tennessee-Martin from 2000-02. He coached the defensive secondary in 2000 and was defensive coordinator in 2001-02.

During the 1996-97 academic year, McCorkle taught PE while coaching the defensive backs and linebackers, and coordinating special teams at Spanish River High School in Boca Raton, Fla.

McCorkle was a standout defensive back at Florida. He played on four SEC championship teams, competed in four bowl games (Gator, Sugar twice and Fiesta) and a national title game. McCorkle graduated with Florida’s single-season and career records for blocked punts. He twice was named Florida’s special teams player of the year.

McCorkle, the football staff’s academic liaison, is coordinator of the Mentoring Program that brings Big Green football players and successful Dartmouth alumni together to introduce the players to business and professional opportunities when they graduate.

He and his wife, Vicki, have three daughters, Madison, Allie and Campbell.

Recruiting Area: Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas (eastern)

Kevin Daft was hired as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in February of 2017. Daft arrived with more than a decade of collegiate coaching experience, most recently at his alma mater, the University of California, Davis.

In his first season in Hanover, Daft oversaw a Dartmouth offense that ranked in the top half of the league in scoring, rushing, passing and total yards, joining league champion Yale as the only teams to do so. He also mentored QB Jack Heneghan, an All-Ivy honorable mention who signed with the San Francisco 49ers after graduating.

Daft spent the last five years on the staff at UC Davis, serving as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the past four. Last fall, the Aggies averaged over 28 points and nearly 400 total yards — of which 238 came through the air — all of which were the highest totals for the program in eight years. UC Davis also ranked 14th among FCS schools in fewest interceptions thrown (7) and 10th in fewest turnovers lost (13) under his guidance in 2016.

The year prior, Daft’s offense was terrific at ball control as well, ranking second in the nation in time of possession and 12th in completion percentage (.645), not to mention fifth in red zone offense, scoring on over 90 percent of trips inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. His 2014 offense was also among the top 20 nationally in completion percentage (.644, 12th) and team passing efficiency (146.28, 19th). The top-two rushing totals at UC Davis of the past 14 years came during his watch as well.

Prior to his first season with the Aggies as the co-offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach in 2012, Daft spent a season as the wide receivers coach and assisted on special teams in the United Football League with the Omaha Nighthawks under Joe Moglia, a former Dartmouth assistant coach and the current head coach at Coastal Carolina. There he oversaw the league’s leading wide receiver, Chris Davis, who averaged over seven catches and 60 yards per game.

Daft was on the coaching staff for seven seasons at California, the first three as a graduate assistant working with the offensive line as the Bears qualified for a bowl game each season, winning the Las Vegas Bowl in 2005 and the Holiday Bowl in 2006. He was elevated to the quarterbacks coach in 2007, helping Cal to a victory in the Armed Forces Bowl, then took over the duties of coaching the wide receivers for three years with another bowl victory along the way.

Among his former players that are currently competing in the NFL are Keenan Allen with the Los Angeles Chargers, Marvin Jones with the Detroit Lions, Jeremy Ross with the Arizona Cardinals and Kaelin Clay with the Baltimore Ravens.

A two-time captain and All-American quarterback at UC Davis, Daft set five NCAA Division II records while throwing for 7,601 yards and 68 touchdowns in his collegiate career. He was a finalist for the Harlon Hill Trophy, the Division II version of the Heisman Trophy, and was inducted into the Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Fame in 2005. He graduated from UC Davis with a degree in biology in 1999.

Daft was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the fifth round of the 1999 NFL Draft and was with the team during its run to Super Bowl XXXIV before signing contracts with the San Diego Chargers, Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers before returning to the Titans in 2002. He saw action in NFL Europe with the Scottish Claymores and Amdsterdam Admirals, leading the Claymores to the World Bowl in 2000 and setting an NFL Europe career record with 30 touchdown passes. Daft was also a member of the San Jose SaberCats (2003) and Indiana Firebirds (2004) in the Arena Football League.

Assistant Coach - Offensive Line
Keith Clark

Recruiting Area: Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania (all but Philadelphia), Tennessee, West Virginia

During Clark’s nine years on the Big Green sideline, the running game has been one of the strongest in the Ivy League, while the pass blocking has ranked among the best in the FCS. Eight of his linemen have bene named first-team All-Ivy League 10 times, with at least one such honor in each of the past eight years.

A coaching veteran of 32 years in the college ranks, including 26 in the Ivy League, Clark took an offensive line comprised mostly of underclassmen and molded them into a formidable front that paved the way for Nick Schwieger ’12 to lead the Ivy League in rushing yards per game for three straight years and set the school career rushing record. His front five surrendered less than a sack per game in both 2010 and 2011.

In 2012, Dartmouth ranked 33rd in passing, then followed that up by ranking 18th in rushing (best in the Ivy League). The Green averaged over 30 points a game in 2014 for the first time in over two decades, and after earning a league title in 2015, the 2016 squad led the Ancient Eight in passing and ranked second in total offense. Last year, the Dartmouth line surrendered just 10 sacks, a total bested by just 14 teams.

Clark spent 12 seasons (1997-2008) on the sidelines at Yale, first as the offensive line coach before being elevated to associate head coach in 2003. He also spent time as the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator as Yale broke 75 school offensive records. Clark helped Yale to an overall record of 70-49 and two Ivy championships (1999 and 2006). No less than 11 Bulldog offensive linemen earned first-team All-Ivy honors under his guidance.

Clark got his start in the Ivy League at Columbia, spending five years with the Lions as the offensive line coach and run game coordinator. He also oversaw the strength program and team travel as part of his duties. In his final season at Columbia, the Lions posted a record of 8-2, their best showing in 50 years.

Clark has been a member of the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) since 1987 and was chairman of the FCS Assistant Coach’s Committee for four years. Clark has been active in the community as well, participating in Reading for Elementary Schools Program and Middle School Football Mentoring Program.Prior to his Ivy League service, Clark spent three seasons at Wagner College as the offensive line coach, recruiting coordinator, special teams coordinator and strength coach. The Seahawks posted a 16-13 mark with Clark on the staff. He coached for single seasons at Rutgers as a graduate assistant in 1988, Maine as the Black Bears won the Yankee Conference and advanced to the I-AA playoffs, and his alma mater, Lafayette, in 1986. In addition, he was the head coach of the Bolzano Jets in Italy for two seasons, posting an overall mark of 21-6.

A 1985 graduate of Lafayette with a bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering, Clark was a three-year starter at offensive left tackle for the Leopards, plus wrestled for two years.

Clark and his wife, Kristen, have one son, Kaelan.

Assistant Coach - Defensive LIne
Duane Brooks

Recruiting Area: Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico

Brooks joined the Big Green staff in the summer of 2014 as the defensive line coach. He comes to Hanover following a distinguished career spanning more than two decades at the collegiate level, with 16 seasons in the Ivy League.

That experience served him well in his first year at Dartmouth as two of his three starting linemen were named to the All-Ivy First Team in Evan Chrustic and A.J. Zuttah, while the third (Cody Fulleton) made the second team. Both Zuttah and Fulleton returned in 2015 to garner first-team honors, while Sawyer Whalen earned honorable mention. Nick Tomkins made the second team in 2016 and ’17 with two seniors earning honorable mention in both years as well, making it four straight years three of his players garnered recognition.

Most recently, Brooks served on the Husson College staff for two years overseeing the defensive line after a 15-year stint with the Yale Bulldogs in the same role. He coached no less than 22 linemen that earned All-Ivy honors while in New Haven.

During the 1996 campaign, he spent the season under legendary coach Al Bagnoli at Penn as the director of football operations. Brooks began his career as a defensive line mentor in 1992 at Colby College, followed by single seasons at Maine (video coordinator), Johnson C. Smith (defensive line and special teams) and Allegheny College (defensive end).

In addition to his football duties at Colby, Brooks also coached women’s squash and men’s basketball, the latter for the school’s long-time coach Dick Whitmore, the father of current Dartmouth Associate Athletics Director Richard Whitmore.

Brooks, a four-year member of the football squad at the University of Maine where he earned his degree in 1987, played his final two seasons for the Black Bears under Buddy Teevens, who enjoyed a successful stint with the Black Bears in his first head coaching position.

Assistant Coach - Wide Receivers
Dave Shula

Recruiting Area: Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia

At the onset of the spring of 2018, the Dartmouth College football team hired of former NFL head coach and Big Green wide receiver David Shula ’81 to be the team’s receivers coach.

Shula spent 15 seasons coaching in the NFL, the last five as the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals (1992-96) as one of the youngest head coaches — 32 when he was hired — the league has ever had. His final full season in Cincinnati was his best, leading the squad to a 7-9 record and a tie for second place in the AFC Central in 1995.

“I appreciate the opportunity that Coach Teevens has given me,” Shula said. “I am lucky to be married to a member of the Class of 1981, and our oldest son is an ’06, so Dartmouth roots run deep. I look forward to helping Dartmouth continue its championship tradition.”

After signing out of Dartmouth as an undrafted free agent with the Baltimore Colts in 1981, Shula spent one season on the roster and saw action in all 16 games as a kickoff and punt returner. The following year, he began his coaching career on the staff of the Miami Dolphins under the tutelage of his father, Don Shula, in the final game of the regular season and all the way to the Super Bowl while filling in for the departed offensive coordinator.

Shula served as the wide receivers coach for the next three seasons, overseeing the likes of young players like Mark Clayton and Mark Duper. In 1985, he took on the duties of the quarterbacks coach as well, working with Hall of Famer Dan Marino, before turning his full attention to the men behind center in 1988.

After seven years with the Dolphins, he was hired by the Dallas Cowboys to help start the rebuilding process under new head coach Jimmy Johnson as his offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. During Shula’s two years in that role, he mentored a rookie quarterback named Troy Aikman, helping him win seven games in his second year in the league.

In 1991, Shula joined the Bengals staff as the wide receivers coach under Sam Wyche, then took over head coaching duties the following year.

Shula is one of the most prolific receivers in Dartmouth history and still ranks sixth all-time with 1,822 receiving yards as well as eighth with 133 receptions in three seasons on the varsity squad. Two of his three years still sit among the top 20 in both receptions and yardage with 49 catches for 656 yards as a sophomore — with Teevens playing quarterback — and 52 grabs for 758 yards as a senior in 1980.

Shula, a 1981 graduate with a degree in history, has spent the past 20-plus years working in various capacities for the family restaurant, Shula’s Steak House, helping the chain grow from six to 30 restaurants while serving as the president of the company.

“Dave and his family are a wonderful addition to Dartmouth and our football program,” Teevens said. “His love of the college, expertise in the game, experience and character will have a significant impact on everyone associated with Dartmouth Football.”

Cheston Blackshear

Recruiting Area: Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Texas (western), Utah, Washington, Wyoming

Blackshear joined the Dartmouth coaching staff during the spring of 2017 after three years at Nevada as the tight ends coach. With the Big Green, his responsibilities include coaching the tight ends as well as the offensive tackles. In his first year with the Big Green, he tutored All-Ivy League honorable mention tight end Stephen Johnston.

Between two stints in the Mountain West with Nevada (2014-16) and New Mexico (2009-12), Blackshear spent a season at Georgetown. With the Lobos, he coached Jarred Gipson to all-conference honors twice.

At New Mexico, Blackshear guided Lucas Reed to Freshman All-America honors in 2009, first-team all-conference recognition the following year, and an All-America selection to go along with being named a John Mackey Award candidate. Blackshear also coached offensive lineman Byron Bell, who is starting his seventh season in the NFL in 2017.

Blackshear is no stranger to the Ivy League as he spent three seasons at Columbia (2006-08). Prior to that, he served as a graduate assistant at Illinois (2005) and at his alma mater, Florida (2002-04).

Blackshear entered coaching after an outstanding playing career at the University of Florida. He was a four-year letterwinner (1996-99), earning second-team All-Southeastern Conference as a senior while being awarded the Fergie Ferguson Award as the senior with the most leadership, character and courage. Blackshear played in four bowl games, including the 1997 Sugar Bowl when the Gators won the national championship.

Following his 2000 graduation with a degree in business administration, Blackshear signed with the Carolina Panthers. He played guard with Orlando of the XFL in 2000-01, helping the Rage lead the league in rushing.

Assistant Coach - Running Backs
Danny O'Dea

A successful head and assistant coach at the high school ranks for 15 years, O’Dea joined the Big Green staff prior to the 2015 season running quality control for the special teams. This year he has been promoted to coach the nickelbacks while assisting with the overall secondary.

O’Dea helped orchestrate major improvements in the programs at three different prep schools — The Hun School of Princeton, Cheshire Academy and The Lawrenceville School. His teams producted over 150 student-athletes into college football while being successful on the field, winning a total of seven championships.

A two-sport athlete for the Big Green, he played football throughout his career, though injuries kept him from reaching his full potential on the field. Cavanaugh was also an outfielder on the baseball team as a freshman.

For the 2018 season, Cavanaugh has been promoted to an assistant coach overseeing the nickelbacks.

Defensive Quality Control
Vaughn Johnson
Offensive Quality Control
Callie Brownson

After serving a two-week internship during the 2018 preseason, Brownson was hired as the Big Green’s offensive quality control coach for the season, becoming the first full-time female football coach at the Division I level.

“Callie is as good as anyone I’ve ever had in terms of her skill set, preparedness, attention to detail and passion,” Teevens said. “Players came up to me after a few days of preseason wondering if I would consider hiring her. She is a forward-thinking individual, very broad-minded. We had an opening, the preseason was kind of like a tryout and she excelled — on and off the field — every day.”

Brownson originally came to Teevens’ attention at the Manning Passing Academy where she served as one of the 16 female coaches for the first women's clinic held at the prestigious camp. In that short period of time, she made a strong impression on Teevens, so much so that he invited her along with Chenell “Soho” Tillman-Brooks to come to Hanover for a two-week internship during the preseason. The idea was to have them take part in all of the team activities, from meetings on the recruiting process, strength and conditioning, practice and game planning, and film evaluation, as well as staff meetings and personnel discussions to learn the ins and outs of being a collegiate coach while also exposing them to the technology and safety regimen the Big Green utilize.
Hailing from Alexandria, Virginia, Brownson has quite the football background as a player on the D.C. Divas from 2010-17 in the Women's Football Alliance. She was a five-time team captain and four-time All-American as a free safety and a running back, helping the Divas win national titles in 2015 and ’16. Brownson is also a two-time gold medalist (Finland in 2013, Vancouver in 2017) with Team USA Women's Football. Her coaching background extends to the high school level as she spent three falls with Mount Vernon High (where she went to school) as an assistant coach, and last summer was a college/professional personnel scouting intern with the New York Jets.

During her internship with the Jets, she helped evaluate current college upperclassmen that could potentially enter the draft, broke down film and set up workout drills for free agent tryouts, among many other duties. At Mount Vernon High, she created daily practice itineraries, built scouting reports and led film study and breakdown sessions for schematic assessments. Brownson earned her bachelor’s degree in sport management from George Mason University in 2015.

“I am extremely grateful to Coach Teevens and the Dartmouth football program for this opportunity to join the staff this season,” Brownson said. “The preseason alone has been an incredible experience, but now I look forward to learning and growing in the game of football with this great group of coaches and players throughout the year.”
