With him coming from a high-level school at Cortland, he knows the SUNY system very well and knows the high standards that we expect from our student-athletes both on and off the field."
"I am looking forward to the opportunity to engage with such ambitious student-athletes," said Bright. "This opportunity that Coach Kendrick-Holmes and the Athletic Department have afforded me with is one I plan to take full advantage of."
"As a former collegiate student athlete, I understand the rigors that these young men go through and I am going to try my best to help them conquer every situation and achieve success on and off the field," added Bright.

A former standout linebacker at Cortland, Bright graduated Magna Cum Laude with his degree in Kinesiology-Exercise Science in central New York. On the field, he recorded 142 tackles with the Red Dragons in 34 career contests, with three interceptions for Head Coach Dan MacNeill.
