Derek Getchell returns for his second season on head coach Steve Tirrell's staff in 2019 as the defensive backs coach. 

In his first season with the Bulldogs, he tutored a secondary that saw all four starters earn Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) All-Conference honors while the Bulldog defense finished tied for fifth in NCAA Division III in interceptions (22).

Getchell's charges helped spearhead a defense that allowed just 157.1 passing yards per game in 2018 and just two passers threw for more than 200 yards in a game.
