DAVIDSON, N.C. – Davidson head football coach Scott Abell named Cory Colder as the Wildcats new running back coach, announced by the head man Monday.

“We are so excited about the addition of Cory Colder to our staff and football family.  He is a high energy coach that understands what takes to be successful in our league and at the FCS level,” said Abell.

Colder takes control of a Davidson running back room that featured a pair of All-PFL first team backs in Dylan Sparks and Coy Williams. The duo combined for 11 touchdowns and three 100-yard games.

A 2018 graduate of East Tennessee State University, Colder was a member of the first recruiting class for the Buccaneers of the then newly reinstated program. He helped lead ETSU to the 2018 Southern Conference Championship and an automatic qualifier to the FCS Playoffs. 

Colder joins the ‘Cats following two seasons at Pioneer Football League foe Valparaiso. While with the Crusaders, Colder coached the PFL’s leading rusher in 2020-21, Robert Washington (108.8 yards). Washington was ninth in the FCS in rushing and among the nation’s best in carries, yards and touchdowns.
