Chris Palmer, who became the sixth director of athletics and recreation at the University of New Haven in January 2018, is going back into retirement. His last day will be June 30, according to school sources, and a national search to find his replacement has begun. Palmer, 69, coached 13 teams in four professional football leagues, coached at five different colleges and retired from coaching three times. He led New Haven’s football program in the 1980s before going on to a long coaching career that included two Super Bowl runs as an assistant. He was head coach of the Cleveland Browns from 1999-2000. Palmer, who graduated from Immaculate High in Danbury and Southern Connecticut, replaced Duane Bailey as athletic director at New Haven. -Jeff Jacobs, nhregister. Read More.
