Robert Neviaser has been hired to coach linebackers for the Bowling Green State University football team. He replaces Clark Lea, who accepted a position at Syracuse last month.
Neviaser spent the past two seasons at Stony Brook, serving as the team’s defensive coordinator and defensive line coach, helping the team advance to the playoffs each year. This past season with the Seawolves his defense ranked fourth in the nation in scoring defense and sixth nationally in total defense.
Prior to Stony Brook Neviaser spent three years at Rhode Island. During his time with the Rams, Neviaser served as defensive line coach each season, acting as defensive coordinator for the last two. In 2010, Rhode Island upset No. 2 Villanova and No. 8 New Hampshire, as Neviaser’s defense forced seven turnovers in the two wins. In 2009, the Rams’ defensive unit ranked second in the Colonial Athletic Association with a plus-10 turnover margin.
Neviaser spent five seasons at the University of Delaware from 2002-06. The Blue Hens went 41-22 during that span, winning the Division 1-AA national title in 2003. Delaware recorded 41 sacks and 116 tackles for loss, leading the Atlantic 10 in rushing defense and scoring defense that season.
Neviaser has also spent time at Yale (1997-2002; outside linebackers), Boston College (1995-97; graduate assistant), Harvard (1994-95; offensive line assistant) and King’s College (1993-94; intern).
He is a 1993 graduate of Williams College with a degree in political science.
