Dartmouth Head Football Coach Buddy Teevens Dies Six Months After Truck’s Accident


Buddy Teevens, head football coach at Dartmouth College, was struck by a truck on March 16 while bicycling in St. Augustine, Florida. The 66-year-old Teevens passed away on Tuesday as a result of his injuries, his family said in a statement provided to the school.

“Our family is heartbroken to inform you that our beloved ‘coach’ has peacefully passed away surrounded by family. Unfortunately, the injuries he sustained proved too challenging for even him to overcome,” the statement said.

“Throughout this journey, we consistently relayed the thoughts, memories, and love sent his way. Your kindness and letters of encouragement did not go unnoticed and were greatly appreciated by both Buddy and our family.”

“This is tragic news for Dartmouth and the entire football world. Buddy not only was synonymous with Dartmouth football, he was a beloved coach and an innovative, inspirational leader who helped shape the lives of generations of students,” Dartmouth president Sian Leah Beilock and director of athletics Mike Harrity said in a letter to the Dartmouth community.

According to the school, the incident from March involved Teevens’ bike being hit by a pickup truck, which it referred to as an “accident.” Teevens’ wife Kirsten revealed in April that he sustained spinal cord injuries and that his right leg had to be amputated as a result of the tragedy.

Teevens, a former quarterback for the Big Green who was named the Ivy League Player of the Year in 1978, coached Dartmouth for 22 seasons.

“Buddy was nationally known for his drive to make football safer,” the letter from Beilock and Harrity said. “He reduced full-contact practices by focusing on technique, leading to the development at Thayer School of Engineering of the Mobile Virtual Player, a robotic tackling dummy that has also been used by other college programs and NFL teams.”

After practice on Tuesday, interim head coach Sammy McCorkle notified the squad about Teevens’ passing.

Dartmouth made the announcement that it would commemorate Teevens during the 2023 football season and play its regularly planned game against Lehigh on Saturday.

“There will be a moment of silence prior to the game and a gathering of remembrance afterward,” the school said. “Dartmouth also plans to honor his legacy in the coming weeks and months with input from the Teevens family.”
