Director of Athletics Jim Knowlton today announced the appointment of Bob Bodor as acting head football coach at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). Bodor has been RPI’s defensive coordinator and is a 24-year veteran football coach, including six as head coach at Colorado College.

Bodor will replace Guido Falbo, who resigned to become the assistant head coach at Division II Alderson-Broaddus College in West Virginia.

“We are very fortunate to have a seasoned veteran like Bob on staff already,” Knowlton said. “His familiarity with the Institute and our student-athletes, coupled with his previous experiences, provide our young men with strong opportunities for success both on and off the field. We are excited about Bob leading the team during the 2012 season.”

Rensselaer, which posted a 4-5 record in 2011, including 3-3 in the Liberty League, will conduct a national search for a head football coach at the conclusion of the season.

Bodor was the head coach at Colorado College, a Division III institution, from 2003 until 2008, when the school disbanded the program. He was also the defensive coordinator and special teams coordinator for the Tigers.

Bodor spent the 2010 season as the special teams coordinator and defensive line coach at Division II Colorado School of Mines before coming to Troy in April, 2011. He has also coached at Division III Albion College, where he was the defensive coordinator for five years, and Hartwick College, where he was the defensive coordinator for three seasons.

He has experience at the Division I-AA level at the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University. He entered the college coaching ranks at Johns Hopkins University in 1991.

A 1988 graduate of Denison University with a degree in geology, Bodor and his wife, Bridget, reside in Brunswick with their two children, Bridget and Grayson.
