Assistant Coach / Offensive Coordinator
Tim Viall arrived at Bowdoin in the summer of 2016 and will serve as offensive coordinator for the Polar Bears.
Viall comes to Bowdoin from MIT, where he joined in 2011 and served as offensive coordinator for the Engineers since 2013. He helped guide a prolific, record-setting offense over the last three years at MIT as the Engineers set single-season records in points and total yards in 2014. He also guided 18 players to All-Conference honors and served under head coach Chad Martinovich, who was twice named New England Football Conference Coach of the Year.
Viall graduated from Endicott College in 2010 with a bachelor of science degree in physical education. He was three-year starter at tight end for the Gulls football squad under now-head Bowdoin coach JB Wells. He was an All-New England Football Conference selection in 2008 and, as a senior in 2009, he was a team captain and was named Endicott's offensive MVP.
Back for his sixth year on the coaching staff is Matt Leotti, a 2010 graduate of Bowdoin who made his collegiate coaching debut as an assistant coach of the defensive backs for the Polar Bears in 2011. After stints coaching the linebackers and defensive backs, Leotti has recently moved to the offensive side of the ball. After heading up the running backs and tight ends in 2015, he will assume wide receiver coaching duties this season.
A talented defensive back while playing for Bowdoin, he was named as a co-captain for the 2009 season. As a senior, he was third on the team with 48 tackles and made two interceptions, including a touchdown return against Bates. A decorated three-sport athlete at the Delbarton School, he majored in Government and Legal Studies at Bowdoin. He remained active as a player following graduation, competing for the Trenton franchise in the Southern Indoor Football League and for the Laredo Rattlesnakes of the Lone Star Football League. Leotti also played for the Harrisburg Stampede of American Indoor Football (AIF), helping the squad to the league championship.

Kevin Loney joined the Bowdoin football coaching staff in the summer of 2015. A veteran coach with over a decade of experience in the collegiate ranks, Loney headed up the safeties for the Polar Bears in 2015 and will assume running back and tight end coaching in the fall of 2016.
Loney was most recently the head coach at Nichols College for three seasons from 2011-13. An experienced defensive coach, his resume includes stops at Upper Iowa (defensive line), Notre Dame (graduate assistant, offense), Bethany (defensive coordinator) and Wesleyan (defensive line). Loney graduated from Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa. where he also competed for the outdoor track team in addition to playing football.
