Hamilton, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Colgate football coach Dick Biddle has announced his retirement after 18 seasons leading the program, the Patriot League university's athletic department said Monday.

Biddle will be succeeded by former associate head coach Dan Hunt, who will become the 29th coach in the program's history beginning July 1.

Biddle's accomplishments included seven Patriot League titles and five league coach of the year awards. He is the winningest head coach in Patriot League history, compiling a record of 137-73.

This season, the Raiders finished with a 4-8 record.

"My wife and I carefully considered this decision," Biddle said. "Our love for Colgate and Hamilton is unparalleled, but 18 years as head coach is a long time at any one place. Sometimes a change is good for everybody.

"I've had a great run here and accomplished many of my coaching goals. There are other things I want to do in my life, and this is the perfect opportunity for my wife and me to begin a new chapter."

Biddle will officially announce his retirement at a news conference scheduled for 1 p.m. ET Tuesday.
