Lafayette extends Tavani through 2016

Easton, PA ( - Fresh off a Patriot League championship, Lafayette College announced Wednesday head football coach Frank Tavani has received a contract extension through the 2016 season.

Tavani has a 76-83 record through 14 seasons guiding Lafayette. He has been a member of the Leopards' coaching staff for 27 seasons.

Lafayette won the 2013 Patriot title with a 4-1 league record and made the FCS playoffs for the first title since '06, although the Leopards finished the season with a 5-7 overall record. It was their four league title under Tavani.

"Frank Tavani led our program to a remarkable turnaround this season and the program's first outright title in 19 seasons," Lafayette athletic director Bruce McCutcheon said. "Under Frank's leadership, we've had outstanding student-athletes in our program who compete at a championship level."

In 2013, Lafayette football boasted the fourth-best graduation success rate in the NCAA.
