Former Ivy League standout and Super Bowl champion Sean Morey has been named the Princeton sprint football head coach effectively immediately, it was announced Tuesday by Ford Family Director of Athletics Gary Walters ’67.

Morey moves into the coaching ranks at Princeton after spending the last two years as a Department of Athletics Fellow for general administration. In his role, Morey assisted in a variety of departments working on administrative tasks from game day management to special projects under Walters.

“Sean is a former Ivy League scholar-athlete who personifies the values of our athletic department and our co-curricular commitment to a holistic liberal art education for our athletes. He was a great player and is a deep thinker,” said Walters. “We wish him the best as he takes on this daunting leadership challenge.”

“I am happy to be working with well-rounded scholar-athletes who love the game of football and live the Princeton Athletics ideal of Education Through Athletics,” said Morey.

Morey is a 1999 Brown graduate and was its first Ivy League Rookie of the Year (1995) and Player of the Year (1997). A three-time First-Team All-Ivy and All-New England selection, the wide receiver twice garnered All-America accolades.

Upon his graduation Morey established five Ivy records and 11 Brown records, as he caught 251 career passes, 40 of which went for touchdowns, including one in 1998 against Princeton that was the first touchdown at the new Princeton Stadium.

Morey was drafted in the seventh round of the 1999 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. After a stop with the Philadelphia Eagles, he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers and in 2006 was named the special teams captain and became the first Brown alum to win a Super Bowl. The following season he joined the Arizona Cardinals, where he made a Super Bowl and Pro Bowl appearance.

Morey’s wife, Cara, is an assistant women's hockey coach at Princeton.
