Former New York Giants defensive back Howard Feggins has been named head coach of Saint Augustine’s University (SAU).
“I’m excited for the opportunity of the young men and to show them, if they give me all that effort, then we have an opportunity to win,” Feggins said, via the university website. “The President, Dr. McPhail, and the Athletic Director, Dr. Dawson, are very supportive of the growth and direction of the program.”
The 57-year-old Feggins originally signed with the New England Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina in 1988. After two seasons with the team, he joined the Giants briefly in 1990 — the year they won their second Super Bowl.
After his NFL career ended, Feggins spent time with the London Monarchs of NFL Europe and later, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL.
Feggins appeared in just 11 career games and recorded one interception.
Now Feggins is tasked with leading the way at SAU.
“After a national search for a person who embodied a reimagined university with the history of winning championships, Coach Howard Feggins surfaced as the choice,” said SAU Dean of Collegiate Athletics and Exercise Science Dr. Lin Dawson, who also serves as Acting Athletic Director. “The interview committee was diligent in the search for Transformational Leader, and we have found one.”
