Madonna University adds football

LIVONIA, Mich. — Madonna University President and former Tiffin resident Michael Grandillo announced with the Athletic Director Scott Kennell that the university will add football, beginning in the 2020 season.

“We are excited to add football to our offerings,” Grandillo said. “We hope bringing collegiate football to Western Wayne County will be as thrilling for the communities we serve as it is to the Madonna community. The strength and success of our current programs gives us confidence that Crusaders’ football will find success as well.”

Grandillo was the vice president for development and public affairs at Tiffin University and director of development at Heidelberg.
