Jon Behie is stepping down as offensive coordinator and assistant head coach at McMaster.
The move is being called mutual.
Behie has spent 10 seasons with McMaster football; both as an athlete and coach.
His final day is November 30th.
Behie played quarterback and receiver, and he was the pivot for two Marauder (2002, 2003) OUA Yates Cup titles. He was recognized as a member of McMaster’s Team of the Decade for 2000-2009.
As a coach, Behie worked with former Marauder Head Coach Stefan Ptaszek to develop one of the most potent offenses in CIS football, and helped the team to Yates Cup titles in 2011, 2012, and 2014, and McMaster first Vanier Cup Championship in 2011.
“Coach Behie has been a valuable and dedicated member of our coaching staff for 10 years. Jon was also a tremendous student-athlete, excelling in both football and basketball for the Marauders,” stated McMaster Associate Director, Mark Alfano via media release. “We, as a department, have been fortunate to have had Jon on staff and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
A graduate of Nelson high school in Burlington, Behie worked with the Football Ontario provincial program, and was the Offensive Coordinator for Team Ontario-West at the U-18 Canada Cup from 2009-2011, while in 2008, he was the event coordinator for the CIS East-West Bowl that was hosted at McMaster.
