DANVILLE, Ky. - After nearly a quarter century of service at Centre College, Brian Chafin has announced his retirement. Chafin began his coaching career at Centre in 1989 and has served as director of athletics and recreation since 2002.
He leaves an impressive record that includes trips to NCAA championships in five different sports as both player and coach, and leadership of the Centre athletics program that has resulted in significant facilities improvements, success in all sports and the addition of men’s and women’s lacrosse.
A native of Chappaqua, N.Y., Chafin earned a B.S. in physical education at Ithaca College, where he was captain of the men’s basketball team, and a master’s in educational administration at St. Lawrence University. Before arriving at Centre, he coached for 16 years at Clarkson University, leading winning programs in soccer, men’s and women’s basketball, and men’s tennis.
