Cincinnati Christian University is pleased to announce the addition of a varsity football program to begin play in Fall 2016. The university also announces the appointment of David Fulcher, retired NFL All-Pro, as the program’s first head coach. With this addition, CCU becomes just the fourth intercollegiate football program in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Cincinnati Christian University is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Division II, competing in the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletics Conference (KIAC). The university already fields nine varsity sports and is adding men’s baseball and women’s softball this fall. As CCU will be the first program in the KIAC to add varsity football, potential competition has yet to be determined. Head Coach David Fulcher played collegiately for Arizona State University (1983-1986) and had a distinguished eight-year professional career, seven of which were spent with the Cincinnati Bengals. He was the head football coach at Cincinnati Christian High School from 2011 through 2014. Fulcher is the founder of MANA-Now, a non-profit that provides life skills to incarcerated males. He is married (wife, Judy) and has two grown children.
