The Franklin Pierce University community mourns the death of Nick Seymour, assistant football coach, who died as the result of injuries sustained in a two-car accident Wednesday night in Wilton, N.H., according to New Hampshire State Police.

“This is a huge loss to Nick’s family and friends, to the student athletes who benefited from his commitment to good coaching and sportsmanship, and to all of us on campus who had the pleasure of working with him,” said Rachel Burleson, director of athletics at Franklin Pierce University. 

Seymour, a 2010 graduate of Keene State College, had started his fourth year as an assistant coach for the Franklin Pierce University Sprint Football team, working primarily with the team's defensive backs. He was known by many residents of the Monadnock region, having previously spent eight years as an assistant coach for Football at ConVal Regional High School in Peterborough.

“Nick was a widely respected and well-liked member of our university community,” said Dr. Kim Mooney, president of Franklin Pierce University, who added: “Our deepest condolences and thoughts are with his wife, children and entire family at this difficult time.”
