Inside the Cundey Varsity House, as he was introduced as the 30th head coach in program history, Kevin Cahill said culture was going to be a driving force in how he wants to run Lehigh football.
Throughout the collegiate and professional sports ranks, culture has become a buzzword. But what exactly does that mean for Cahill and Lehigh?
“It’s a developmental program,” Cahill said in his office shortly after Lehigh’s Brown and White spring football game. “Obviously we’re going to coach football, but we’re trying to develop our kids on and off the field to be the best they can be.”
Cahill is having players live their lives “the Lehigh Way”—focusing on both their academics and athletics, learning from alumni who can convey how their time at Lehigh helped impact their lives and careers, and understanding that “Lehigh is the opportunity of a lifetime.”
