The Ithaca College football program announced Jan. 26 that Brandon Maguire would be taking over as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Maguire had previous stints in the USFL and at six different universities.

The Ithaca College football program announced Jan. 26 that Brandon Maguire would be taking over as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Maguire steps into the offensive coordinator role after Mike Hatcher, former offensive coordinator and associate head coach, left for Cornell University to become the wide receivers coach under former Bombers head coach Dan Swanstrom.

Maguire began his football career playing wide receiver at the University of Montana from 2009–2012. After an injury, Maguire joined the Grizzlies coaching staff in 2012 before accepting a job as tight ends/h-back coach at Langston University. The following year, Maguire accepted the tight ends/running back coach position at Montana Tech.

Maguire followed up his stint at Montana Tech with a five-year job at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) from 2015–2020. In that time, Maguire spent two seasons each coaching defensive ends and running backs. After his stint at UNC, Maguire was named the offensive quality control coach at Holy Cross University where he would win two Patriot League Championships along with Toerper.

Maguire then moved to the professional United States Football League (USFL) to coach the defensive line for the league’s Philadelphia Stars. Most recently, Maguire was the offensive coordinator for the University of Chicago in 2023, leading the team to a 6–4 record with an average of 402.5 yards per game and 32.5 points per game.

Bombers head coach Michael Toerper said that Maguire will help continue to bring success to the program and that his teaching ability will elevate the staff.

“We are thrilled to add Brandon Maguire to our coaching staff,” Toerper said in the announcement. “He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will instantly benefit our program and our players. Brandon’s ability to share a vision for what winning offensive football looks like and his ability to teach our players the how and the why is what makes him an exciting addition to our staff.”

Toerper said he looks forward to coaching with Maguire and seeing Maguire work closely with the offense.

“I am looking forward to working with [Maguire] again and for our quarterbacks and our offense to be developed under his guidance,” Toerper said in the announcement.
