Jeremy Bandy is in his fifth season as Harvard’s run game coordinator-offensive line coach in 2016.
Bandy coordinates recruiting efforts for the Crimson in the New England states, as well as Virginia, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Delaware and Canada.
Bandy and the offensive line helped the Crimson to a 9-1 season in 2015 and its 17th Ivy League title. The offensive line led the way for an offense that totaled 474.2 yards per game and 36.4 points per game, both first in the Ivy League. Offensive linemen Anthony Fabiano, Cole Toner, Adam Redmond, Larry Allen, Jr., and Max Rich were all tabbed to All-Ivy League teams. Toner was a semifinalist for the “Academic Heisman”, awarded to the American college football player with the best combination of academics, community service and on-field performance. Toner also accepted an invitation to the Reese’s Senior Bowl.
The offensive line unit flourished under Bandy again in 2014, helping the Crimson to a 10-0 season and its 16th Ancient Eight title. The offensive corps ranked 18th in the nation in total offense with 461.4 yards per game, scoring 32.7 points per game (24th in the NCAA). The entire offensive line was tabbed to the All-Ivy League team, as senior center Nick Easton and junior Cole Toner were first-team selections. Easton also earned a nod as an All-New England lineman.
Bandy's offensive line helped Harvard claim its 15th Ivy League title in 2013, while two linemen garnered All-Ivy League accolades including first-team selection Nick Easton. The lineman contributed to Harvard's total offense of 426.1 yards per game, which stood 32nd nationally, and scoring offense of 37.1 points per game that ranked 18th in the nation and sat second in the Crimson's record book behind 2012's total of 394 points.
In Bandy’s first season with the Crimson, his linemen helped Harvard rank third nationally in total offense (487.5 yards per game), fourth in scoring offense (39.4 points per game), fourth in passing efficiency (157.25 rating), 17th in rushing offense (214.3 yards per game) and 19th in passing offense (273.2 yards per game).
Bandy came to Harvard after spending six years on Tim Gilmore’s staff at Holy Cross, four of them as the offensive line coach.
In 2011, Bandy’s offensive line had two selections on the All-Patriot League team. Additionally, long snapper Matt Fava was named to the national all-freshman team by College Sports Journal.
In 2009, four out of the five starters on offensive line earned All-Patriot League honors as the Crusaders won the league title and advanced to the national playoffs. In 2008, two of Bandy’s players earned all-league honors. During his first two seasons with the Crusaders, Bandy served as the tight ends coach, helping to guide the career of first team All-Patriot League selection Ryan McGuire.
Bandy came to Holy Cross from Allegheny College, where he served as the offensive line coach for four seasons. Allegheny won the 2003 national championship, and in 2004, Bandy guided an offensive line which paved the way for the Gators to rush for 1,657 yards and 16 touchdowns.
A 2001 graduate of Baldwin-Wallace College, Bandy played both center and guard on the offensive line for the Yellow Jackets. During his undergraduate days at Baldwin-Wallace, he also served as a recruiting assistant in the football office.
