Bruce DeHaven Football Complex - Construction SummarySouthwestern College athletic director and head men’s basketball coach Matt O’Brien is looking forward to the addition of the DeHaven Football Complex. The facility will include training space, team meeting and film rooms, study hall, locker room, conference room, coaching offices, a laundry room, and equipment storage space.

“We are thrilled to be dedicating a new facility in honor of Coach DeHaven, a member of the Southwestern Class of 1970 and highly accomplished special teams coach in the NFL,” O’Brien says.  “The DeHaven Football Complex will not only create much-needed training space, but also provide our student-athletes and staff with a top-notch environment to learn and work in together. Friday will be a proud day for Builder Nation.

Head football coach and assistant athletic director Brad Griffin says he is glad that SC is honoring DeHaven.

“I had the opportunity to meet Coach DeHaven and know he would be very honored and proud,” Griffin says.  “We are very excited and look forward to completion of the new facility which will help develop our current and future Builders as scholar-athletes. Coach DeHaven’s legacy will forever live on at Southwestern College.”
