UMD STADIUM TAKES MALOSKY'S NAME

Legendary head coach Jim Malosky's name was added to the UMD football facility where he spent many a fall afternoon roaming the sidelines. On Oct. 2, just prior to the Bulldogs' first-ever North Central Conference game with Minnesota State University-Mankato, the on-campus facility officially became Griggs Field at James S. Malosky Stadium. Malosky stepped down in 1999 after a storied 40-year head coaching career with the Bulldogs. He still remains the winningest coach in NCAA Division II history with a record a 255-125-13. But more important than the victories were the countles lives he touched during his four decades of service. "Jim was a father figure to many of his players," said former Bulldog lineman Marc Sienkiewicz ('96). "To him, football was never just about winning games. You just didn't want to let him down. Everyone loved the guy." The 76-year old Malosky currently resides in Excelsior, Minn., with his wife Lilah.
