Truman State OC Jason Kilday Introduced As Quincy Football Coach

Truman State Offensive Coordinator Jason Kilday was introduced as the new Head Football Coach at Quincy University this morning (Wed.). He replaces Gary Bass, who resigned last week to take the head coaching job at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise.

Kilday just completed his 8th season as the OC for Truman. In his first season, the Bulldogs won a share of the GLVC Championship. During Kilday’s time at Truman, the Bulldogs won the America’s Crossroads Bowl in 2019, 2021 and ’22 and he was part of four consecutive 9-win seasons for the first time in program history. Another first was the team averaging 30-plus points per game for four consecutive seasons from 2019-22.

Prior to his time in Kirkville, Kilday was a member of the coaching staff for QU Football from 2010 through 2015. In his final year in Quincy, Killday served as the assistant head football coach, quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator in 2014-2015. Prior to his first stint with the Hawks, Killday was an assistant football coach at three Illinois high schools, including two undefeated seasons and two IHSA Class 5A State Championships at Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Springfield.

The Quincy Hawks finished with a record of 6-5 this past season.
