BRONX, N.Y. – If Fordham track and field/cross country head coach Tom Dewey were asked about his recent decision he would probably quote Oscar Wilde who once penned “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” That quote perfectly sums up Coach Dewey. Dewey, the longtime Ram head coach announced his retirement, effective June 30, after 39 years of leading the men’s and women’s track and field/cross country programs.
“I’d like to thank ALL of the student-athletes who have allowed me to be part of their lives while at Fordham and afterwards,” said Dewey. “However it is now time to allow someone else to have that experience and that good feeling of watching these young people develop. Of course, I will miss the interaction among the coaching staff, who have made the program what it is today. To all of the support staffs from facilities to administration to security, I thank you for making my job easier.”
