February 16, 2011
February 16, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — Bill Lynch, who served as DePauw University's head football coach in 2004 before leaving for Division I Indiana University, is returning to his alma mater, Butler University, "in a newly created fund-raising role," reports the Indianapolis Star. "Lynch, 56, a Hall of Fame athlete for the Bulldogs, will become associate athletic director of development March 1. He reunites with athletic director Barry Collier, a close friend since they were basketball teammates in the 1970s."
Lynch, who was head football coach at IU the past four seasons, says, "Obviously, there are things I will have to learn, but you have to be active in fund-raising as a coach."
David Woods notes, "As a football coach, Lynch has a career record of 100-97-3 in stops at Butler (36-12-3), Ball State (37-53), DePauw (8-2) and Indiana (19-30)." He also served as an assistant coach for the USFL's Orlando Renegades. (at right: Lynch with Indianapolis Colts QB and Ubben Lecturer Peyton Manning at DePauw's Kresge Auditorium; October 26, 2004)
