Coash’s teams compiled an 18-5-1 mark during his three seasons and were ranked first in New England with a 7-1 mark in 1981. That team ranked first in the nation in total offense, second in scoring offense, and third in rushing offense.
After graduation, Coash signed with the New England Patriots, playing the entire preseason, including a three-catch game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He played for the Boston Breakers of the USFL in 1983 and was the team’s fourth-leading receiver as the starting tight end.
