Back for his fourth year as the Defensive Coordinator duties is former Lowell High School head coach Scott Boyle. His first Falcon team (2009) was third in Division II in pass efficiency defense and ninth in fewest points allowed, and his 2010 squad was fourth in the Northeast-10 in scoring defense, and the Falcons led the NE-10 in the four major defensive categories.
A 1994 graduate of UMass-Lowell, Boyle came to Bentley following a year as the wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator at Saint Anselm College (2008).
During his decade as head coach at Lowell, Boyle amassed a record of 68-37-2 and twice led the Red Raiders to the Merrimack Valley Conference championship (2001, 2006). He was the Lowell Sun Coach of the Year in both 1998 and 2006, and the MVC Coach of the Year in 2006.
In addition, Boyle was the boys basketball coach at Lowell from 2003-09, and has two league titles (2007, 2008) to his credit. The Lowell Sun recognized him as its Coach of the Year in both 2007 and 2009, and he’s twice been the MVC Coach of the Year. He was also the Massachusetts Basketball Coaches Association Division I North Coach of the Year in 2007.
Boyle played outside linebacker at UMass-Lowell from 1989-92, and was a starter for three-plus seasons. His playing career included a New England Football Conference championship in 1991 and a 27-3 record during his first three seasons.
A Lowell native, Boyle is a physical education instructor at Lowell High School.
