 CASTLETON, Vt. (AP) -Castleton State College hired Rich Alercio on Thursday to build its new football program, which will begin play in 2009.
An assistant at The College of New Jersey, Alercio beat out more than 150 others for the job, said Deanna Tyson, associate dean of athletics and recreation. Alercio will start July 1, and will have to hire a full-time assistant and help plan a new Spartan Stadium.
``The five candidates we interviewed on campus were all well qualified to coach at Castleton, but Rich Alercio is the best fit for our athletic program,'' Tyson said. ``He is going to be a tremendous role model for our male athletes.''
Castleton will play in the NCAA Division III North Atlantic Conference, which includes Becker College, Gallaudet University, Husson College, SUNY Maritime College, Mount Ida College and Norwich University.
