Biography

Cozza, the son of Italian immigrants, played quarterback at Miami University under coaches Ara Parseghian and Woody Hayes, graduating from Miami in 1952. While at Miami he was a member of Delta Tau Delta International Fraternity. He also played baseball at Miami, and later played for minor league affiliates of the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox. Cozza was an assistant football coach at Miami from 1956 to 1962 under his fellow Miami alumnus, John Pont. When Pont was named head coach at Yale in 1963, Cozza accompanied him there. Cozza became head coach at Yale in 1965 after Pont accepted the head coaching job at Indiana University.
