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.
