Greensboro, N.C. (8/23/06) -- Guilford College athletic director Marion Kirby added three assistant football coaches to the Quakers' staff Wednesday. Zane Chamra, Richard Cline and Ian Mosher fill out second-year head coach Kevin Kiesel's (KEE-sul) cadre. Kirby also announced the promotion of offensive coordinator Pat Randolph to assistant head coach Wednesday.
A volunteer assistant, Chamra will help Kiesel coach Guilford's offensive linemen. He teaches health and physical education in the Early College at Guilford and in middle colleges at North Carolina A&T State University and Bennett College. Chamra coached the defensive line for Davie County (N.C.) High School's junior varsity team in 2003. He played both sides of the line at Elon University from 1998-2001 and helped the Phoenix to a 9-2 mark in 1999 under coach Al Seagraves. Chamra earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from Appalachian State University in 2003.
Guilford's new defensive line coach, Cline makes his professional coaching debut after graduating from Moravian College earlier this year. After starting his college career at St. Peter's, he lettered three seasons on football coach Scott Dapp's defense and helped Moravian to a 17-15 record with two Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) playoff appearances. Cline earned 2004 Second Team All-Middle Atlantic Conference laurels at defensive end and also captained the team. The Union Beach, N.J. native piled up a personal-best 68 tackles as a linebacker in 2003 and made 133 career stops with the Greyhounds. He coached Moravian's defensive backs in 2005 as a student assistant and helped the team to its first ECAC bowl win. On the diamond, Cline played first base and ranks among the Greyhounds' career leaders in six categories, including home runs (15, 2nd). The first baseman received Second Team All-Commonwealth Conference laurels and captained the team as a senior. He was an all-county football performer at Keyport High School and helped the Red Raiders to two state titles.
Mosher returns to Greensboro to direct Guilford's linebackers. The 2004 Greensboro College graduate spent the past year coaching the defensive backs at Northern Nash High School in Rocky Mount, N.C. He started his coaching career in 2004 as the head football coach at Arlington Middle School in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. A three-year starter, Mosher played in Greensboro's secondary and ranks seventh in school history with 147 career tackles (80 solo). He played under Kirby on Greensboro's 2000 and 2001 squads that both won a school-record five games. Mosher won the team's Pride Coaches Award as a senior and earned a spot on the Dixie Conference Academic Honor Roll. He prepped at Arlington (N.Y.) High School where he earned all-conference and honorable mention all-section recognition.
Randolph received a promotion following Guilford's record-setting offensive campaign in 2005. The Quakers' no-huddle passing scheme shattered the school record books and sparked the team to a 5-5 overall record, its best since 1997. Guilford ranked among the NCAA Division III leaders in scoring, total offense and passing yards per game. Chris Barnette '07 became the school's 35th all-time All-American after leading all NCAA divisions with 101 receptions for 1,369 yards and 15 touchdowns. Quarterback Josh Vogelbach '09 won Guilford's first ODAC Football Rookie of the Year Award after setting four NCAA Division III freshman passing records.
A 1988 West Virginia graduate and four-year football letter winner under coach Don Nehlen, Randolph is in his second season on Guilford's staff. He also has coached at Harriton and Conestoga high schools in Pennsylvania and assisted collegiately at Ball State, Utah State and Indiana (Pa.). Randolph grew up in Folsom, Pa., and after a standout gridiron career at Ridley High School, he earned a football scholarship to West Virginia where he rushed for over 1,200 yards in four seasons. He holds the Mountaineers' school record for the longest run from scrimmage, a 96-yard scoring jaunt against Northern Illinois in 1986.
Guilford opens its 100th football season Sept. 2 against visiting Ferrum in the newly renovated Armfield Athletic Center. The Quakers return 24 letter winners from last year's club that won its final four games to share second place in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference standings.
