About This Project

Tiger Family, Coach Phil Albert was the foundation of making Towson University Football what it is today.

He was honored with the creation of a Bronze Bust in the Stadium, placed on the Home side concourse.

Albert was Towson’s head football coach for 20 years from 1972 to 1991 and is the winningest coach in program history with 117 victories. The three-time Kodak District II Coach of the Year turned Towson into a powerful program, going from a 1-9 team in 1972 to the Tigers’ undefeated 10-0 year in 1974.

For his accomplishments, Coach Albert was inducted into the Towson Athletics Hall of Fame in 1994. He coached 12 Associated Press All-Americans and eight Kodak All-Americans as well as three future National Football League players. Along with being a football coach, Albert was a professor here at Towson.

The University of Arizona graduate was also a member of the Cambria County Sports Hall of Fame.
