Why I Never Left Williams College

“Farley is a treasure, and his story is college sports perfection,” says Tim Layden of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports. When Dick Farley started at Williams College as a football and track and field coach in 1972, he had no intention of staying in Williamstown. Now, 49 years later, he tells the story of his career and why he became rooted in the community. Named one of the 150 Greatest Football Coaches by ESPN in 2019, Farley maintained an intense style of coaching; his terse sayings and wisdom are widely remembered.
