UB Bulls Head Coach to Speak at Buffalo Rotaryby mmcnamara
Public is invited to meet and greet on June 16
The public is invited to meet and ask questions of Jeff Quinn, head coach of the University at Buffalo Bulls football program, on June 16 at 12:15 p.m. at Templeton Landing (2 Templeton Terrace, Buffalo). Quinn is in his second season as the Bulls' dynamic head coach and will talk about "Building and Developing a Championship Culture at UB" as the guest speaker of the Rotary Club of Buffalo's weekly luncheon series.
"To have the opportunity to meet and answer questions from Bulls fans off the field is a great treat and one that I warmly embrace," said Coach Quinn. "I look forward to speaking at Buffalo Rotary and invite the public to join in the conversation as we work together in building a winning culture at UB and Western New York at large."
Quinn was introduced as the Bulls' 24th head coach on December 22, 2009. In his first season, the Bulls finished 2-10 with a 1-7 mark in MAC play. Despite the record, the Bulls boasted one of their best defenses in their Division I history. Quinn had produced record-breaking offenses throughout his 27-year college coaching tenure and won conference and national championships at his last three stops, including five conference crowns in his previous eight seasons. He joined the Bulls after serving as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at the University of Cincinnati, where Quinn helped the Bearcats compile a 33-6 record, including a 12-0 record in 2009 and a national No. 4 ranking heading into the Sugar Bowl meeting with defending national champion Florida. (Quinn's biography follows this release.)
Tickets are $20, include lunch and can be purchased by calling the Rotary Club of Buffalo at 716-854-3397. Funds raised at the weekly luncheon series help support The Buffalo Rotary Foundation, which over the last 20 years alone has provided more than $2 million in charitable grants for much needed operational support, personnel, equipment, and educational materials to address such critical issues as poverty, health, hunger, illiteracy, and the environment in Buffalo and Western New York.
