Coastal names Patenaude new offensive coordinator

Coastal Carolina head football coach Joe Moglia has named Dave Patenaude (Pat-tin-Node) offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Patenaude has 21 years of coaching experience, spending the past two years as Georgetown University’s offensive coordinator.

“Dave has a proven track record at our level and has consistently produced top-level student-athletes,” Moglia said. “After an exhaustive search, conducting numerous interviews and talking with people I respect, it became clear Dave is the right man to run our offense. His offensive philosophy matched my vision of having an up-tempo, perimeter attack that has the quarterback making plays with both his arm and legs. I am looking forward to spring practice to see his plan executed.”

In his first year at Georgetown, he helped the Hoyas to one of their most productive seasons on offense in the past decade. Patenaude guided quarterback Scott Darby to a pair of Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week honors. In addition, the team gained 3,230 all-purpose offensive yards that led to four more wins in 2010 than in 2009. Then, in 2011, Georgetown went 8-3, another four-game improvement over the previous year, and was runner-up in the Patriot League.

Prior to his time at Georgetown, Patenaude spent three seasons on the coaching staff at Hofstra, the last two as the team’s offensive coordinator, before the University dropped the football program. He served as the Pride’s quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator in 2007. Hofstra ranked fifth in the conference and 26th in the nation in passing offense in 2007. Under Patenaude’s guidance, Pride quarterback Bryan Savage ranked fourth in the CAA and 15th in the FCS in total offense in 2007. In 2008, with a young offense that lost two starting quarterbacks to injuries, the Pride ranked fifth in the conference in rushing and seventh in total offense.

Patenaude arrived at Hofstra after three seasons at the College of the Holy Cross. He served as running backs coach for the Crusaders in 2004 and 2005 before becoming the special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach in 2006. While at Holy Cross he coached two-time All-America tailback Steve Silva, who also led the nation in all-purpose yards in 2005.

In 2002, Patenaude was named the head football coach at the University of New Haven (Conn.) where he served for two seasons. During his tenure at the Division II school, the Chargers posted a 5-15 record and produced two standouts that went on to the National Football League.

Patenaude spent a four-year tenure (1998-2001) at Columbia University. He served as wide receivers coach for the Lions from 1998-2000, was also in charge of coaching the quarterbacks in 2000 and 2001, and became Columbia’s offensive coordinator in 2001.

Prior to going to Columbia, Patenaude spent four seasons at Fordham University, serving as tight ends coach his first season, special teams coordinator and wide receivers from 1995-97 and added quarterbacks coach to his double-duty during his final two seasons.

He began his collegiate coaching career in 1991 as running backs coach at the United States Coast Guard Academy. After one season at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn., he moved on to Springfield (Mass.) College, where he served as wide receivers and running backs coach in 1991 and 1993. While at Springfield he completed a master’s degree in physical education and sports management.

A 1990 graduate of Central Connecticut State University, Patenaude was a three-year starting quarterback and free safety. He and his wife, Christine, have two daughters, Eva (8) and Estelle (3).
