The Carm Cozza Complex was dedicated on Nov. 13th 2010 as part
of the Yale-Princeton Football weekend. Named for Yale’s Hall
of Fame football coach, the complex spans the entire second
floor of the Smilow Field Center and brings the entire Yale
football team together. For the exclusive use of the football
program, the renovation includes meeting rooms, state-of-the-art
technology and an upgraded locker room with space for all 110 men
on the roster.
Another highlight of the complex includes the Carm Cozza
gallery, which extends through the hallway of the entire floor and
showcases memorabilia from his 32-year Yale career and beyond. This
visual legacy serves as an inspiration for all Yale Football
players as they prepare for practice or games in their quest for an
Ivy League Championship.
A leadership gift from John Lykouretzos ‘95 made the
renovation possible. He was a three-time letterman at defensive
tackle who earned honorable mention All-Ivy honors under Cozza.
Lykouretzos led the Bulldogs in sacks two of his three years on the
varsity. His biggest QB takedown came in a seventackle outing in
The Game 1993 when he pulled down the Harvard signal-caller on the
last play of a 33-31 Yale win at the Bowl.
