Bruce Coulter, former Montreal Alouettes quarterback and longtime head football coach and Director of Athletics at Bishop’s University, died on Tuesday night in his 91st year. Originally from Toronto, Coulter left a lasting legacy in the Bishop’s and Lennoxville communities over the course of a life marked by extraordinary accomplishments both on and off the football field. Coulter joined the CFL in 1948 and played 10 seasons as a defensive back and backup quarterback for the Alouettes. In 1949 he helped the team win its first Grey Cup, and never missed a game over the years that followed. After the end of his career as a player, Coulter began coaching at McGill in 1958. In 1960 he led the Redmen to win the Yates Cup and Churchill Bowl national championships. In 1962, he came to Bishop’s to serve as head football coach and Director of Athletics. “You can’t say a negative thing about Bruce,” said Garth Smith, who was the Assistant Director of Athletics at the time Coulter began his career at Bishop’s. “He was just the way a coach should be, and he has left quite a legacy.” See full story in the Thursday, June 7 edition of The Record.
