Chris Judd, Acadia’s Offensive Coordinator for the past five seasons will be leaving the Axemen to take on a new career opportunity. Judd was an AUS All-Star quarterback for the Axemen prior to his coaching career.

Head Coach Jeff Cummins spoke highly of Judd’s contribution to the program during his tenure as Coordinator. “Chris dedicated almost a decade of his life to Acadia as a student –athlete and coach”, commented Cummins. Adding “He is one of my best friends and we will miss him immensely on the field and in the office. I am sure Chris will not be a stranger to Acadia football and hope he will be around valley football for many years to come.”
