Ryan Struthers is entering his seventh season on the UMass Dartmouth football staff and first year guiding the quarterbacks. He also serves as the special teams and recruiting coordinator.
In 2013, Struthers mentored the wide receivers corps. The Corsairs averaged 149.1 yards per game, including 9.8 yards per reception. Abiola Aborishade led UMass Dartmouth with seven touchdown receptions, the most by a Corsair wideout since Corey Williams in 2004.
One of the longest tenured members of the staff, Struthers served as a team manager for two seasons before being hired by Robichaud in 2007. He has directed the wide receivers for five years, while also overseeing the recruitment of prospective student-athletes.
Under his watchful eye, John Henry was named to the All-New England Football Conference, second-team in 2008.
In 2011, Struthers accepted a coaching position at Becker College, serving as the wide receivers coach and passing coordinator. The Eagles posted a 1-9 record, but lost three games by less than one score.
Struthers rejoined the UMass Dartmouth staff in 2012.
The Hampden, Mass. native attended Minnechaug Regional High School, where the Falcons advanced to the MIAA Division I Super Bowl during his sophomore season.
The UMass Dartmouth graduate is a middle school teacher in the Westport school system.
