“I’m very comfortable here at Baker,” said Young, entering his 41st season coaching football. “ I already told some of the guys that I’m an old-school coach. I take pride in mentoring the players and younger coaches.”
A graduate of Northwest Missouri State University, coach Young and his wife, Dwyla, have three daughters, Julie, Lindy and Kara.
“We are very lucky to have Bruce Young back at Baker University,” stated Baker head coach Mike Grossner. “He will be a positive influence with the young men and coaches on our team. He has such a vast wealth of experience and knowledge and we will all benefit. His recruiting relationships in Missouri, Iowa and Florida will be huge in our efforts to attract the top student-athletes. He absolutely understands the HAAC conference and what needs to be done.”
