Abare has a new gig

Former Yale linebacker Bobby Abare has been named the linebackers coach at Wagner College.

Abare, Yale's captain in 2008, was the Bulldogs' leading tackler the last three seasons and was one of the most decorated defensive players in Yale football history. He was invited to a tryout with the Kansas City Chiefs but was not brought back for the rookie mini-camp.

Ironically, Abare's position was opened up by Harvard's hiring of former Wagner secondary coach Mike Horan. Joe Todd, the Seahawks' former linebackers coach, took over as secondary coach with Abare being hired as the new LB coach.

Wagner opens the 2009 season with a home game against Stonehill. The Seahawks will play a pair of Connecticut teams (Sacred Heart and Central Connecticut State) but both games will be in Staten Island, N.Y.

Yale incoming freshman Kurt Stottlemyer, a defensive back from Bothwell, Wash., had a sack as the U.S. defeated Mexico 55-0 to improve to 2-0 in the IFAF Junior World Championships in Canton, Ohio.

Stottlemyer has two solo tackles and one assist in two games as the U.S. has outscored France and Mexico 133-0.

The U.S. and Canada will play in the gold-medal game on Sunday at 1 p.m.
