PRINCETON, N.J. -- Mike Fassel, the son of former New York
Giants coach Jim Fassel, has been named the new director of
football operations at Princeton.

The younger Fassel replaces Nolan Jones, who took a similar
position at Northwestern.

Mike Fassel will be responsible for the coordination of
recruiting, as well as assisting in the organization and
administration of day-to-day efforts for coach Roger Hughes.

Fassel graduated from Boston College in 2004 with a degree in
marketing. The former Eagles walk-on earned a scholarship and a
starting position as a kicker.

His football experience also includes five summers working with
the New York Giants when his father served as head coach. The
younger Fassel prepared practice and game equipment and assisted
coaches during practices and drills.

Mike Fassel founded and owned TGB Digital Inc., a video
production company based in Bergen County, N.J. He also had an
internship with Credit Suisse First Boston, and served on the
executive board of the Boston College Macintosh Users Group.

Jim Fassel is currently the offensive coordinator for the
Baltimore Ravens.
