In December 2009, Hofstra cut its football team, citing a lack of funds and fading interest in the sport. The team had competed in the NCAA's Football Championship Subdivision, which was formerly known as Division I-AA. Alumni of the University's football program include Wayne Chrebet, who played for the New York Jets from 1995 to 2005, and Marques Colston, who helped lead the New Orleans Saints to a 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. In other recent sports changes, the University also lost basketball coach Tom Pecora to Fordham University.
Since the football team has been cut, many students have cited men's lacrosse as the University's standout sport. The team had a record of 9–4 through May 1 for the 2009–10 season. The women's lacrosse team also performed exceptionally well, going 12–5 through May 6, 2010. Now that both men's and women's lacrosse are no longer in the shadow of the lackluster football team, these two teams might finally start getting the recognition they deserve.
