Adams comes to the Blues after extensive experience as Waterloo Warriors associate head coach. He can be credited with putting a new face on the program and leading the team to playoffs for the first time in 18 years and four times out of the last five years. Prior to his time with the Warriors, Adams was in Ottawa as the defensive line coach and strength and conditioning coordinator of the Carelton Ravens from 2013-16. There, he also helped lead the team to playoffs for the first time in 15 years. In addition to his U Sport coaching experience, he brings a wealth of knowledge from the CFL. Adams served as the strength conditioning coordinator and assistant line coach for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and a guest coach for both the Calgary Stampeders and Saskatchewan Roughriders.

“I am blessed, humbled and beyond thrilled for the opportunity to be the head football coach at the University of Toronto,” said Adams. “I look forward to adding another chapter in the schools rich, diverse and prosperous history by assisting in the growth of the program in all areas: academically, athletically and in the community. By creating a multilayered culture founded on three core principles of respect, trust and love, my primary aim is to help student-athletes from various socio-economic backgrounds achieve their goals on and off the field. I will do everything in my power to ensure that student-athletes who commit to the University of Toronto graduate in a timely fashion, have a robust experience, are equipped with the tools to thrive in life and win as many football games possible. I cannot wait to get started.”
