Faust’s 14-year career as a college head football coach began at the University of Notre Dame (1981-1985) and includes a 1983 Liberty Bowl victory and 1984 Aloha Bowl appearance. Following his tenure at Notre Dame, Faust served as the head football coach at the University of Akron from 1986 to 1994. Prior to coaching college football, Faust coached 18 seasons at Moeller High School in Cincinnati where he achieved a record of 174 wins, 17 losses and two ties. Faust coached Moeller to seven unbeaten seasons, four national prep titles and five Ohio state titles. He was a three-time letterman as quarterback at the University of Dayton.


The Black & Gold Club provides financial support for ODU intercollegiate athletics, and assists student-athletes, coaches and Athletic Department staff in achieving success on and off the field.  The fundraiser includes a dinner, silent and live auctions, and a raffle. Since its inception in 2010, the event has raised more than $400,000 for Ohio Dominican athletics.


Faust joins a distinguished group of speakers who have appeared at the annual event, including Jim Tressel, Archie Griffin, Clark Kellogg, Chris Spielman and Joe Theismann.


ODU sponsors 16 varsity athletics programs and competes as a member of NCAA Division II and the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC).
