Dartmouth Football Mourns the Loss of Beloved Coach Buddy Teevens

Beloved Dartmouth NCAAF football coach Buddy Teevens has passed away at the age of 66 due to injuries sustained during a bicycle accident in March. The Ivy League university shared this heart-wrenching news on Tuesday.

Prior Tragic Bicycle Accident

On March 16, Teevens, an enthusiastic cyclist, was involved in a severe accident. A pickup truck struck him while he was riding his bicycle in St. Augustine, Florida. Tragically, Teevens was not wearing a helmet, and the accident resulted in spinal cord injuries and the later amputation of his right leg, all of which recently led to his untimely and tragic death.

Legacy and Remembrance

The Teevens family expressed their deep sorrow, stating, “Our family is heartbroken to inform you that our beloved coach has peacefully passed away surrounded by family. We are confident and take comfort in the fact that he passed away knowing how much he was loved and admired.”

Despite this devastating loss, Dartmouth’s interim head coach, Sammy McCorkle, informed the NCAAF team of Teevens’ passing, with the determination to continue playing in honor of their coach’s wishes. The university plans to hold a moment of silence ahead of their upcoming game.

Buddy Teevens, who played a pivotal role in Dartmouth football as an NCAAF player and coach, leaves behind a legacy of inspiration and innovation. His contributions to the sport and the lives of countless students will forever be remembered.
