Sister-City News: Lancer Football Head Coach Steps Down

Joe D’Amore is stepping down as the head coach of the Lancer Football program after eight seasons effective immediately.

D’Amore was the fourth head coach in the Lancers’ 50-year history of the football program, following a one year-stint as the interim head coach in 2011.

The Windsor native led the Lancers to four straight OUA playoff appearances from 2011-14 and was the Tuffy Knight Award winner as the OUA Football Coach of the Year in 2011 after his team finished with a 5-3 record and advanced to the OUA semi-finals.

“I would like to thank Joe for his hard work and his contributions to Lancer Football over the past eight seasons,” said Director of Athletics Mike Havey. “He is a true Lancer who was committed as both a coach and as a student-athlete to represent the University of Windsor with great pride and spirit. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”

The University of Windsor will begin a national search immediately for the next head coach of the Lancer Football program.
