New Towson TE coach Bowen happy with unit in camp

Posted on 14 August 2013 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. - With only two more weeks of preparation before the season opener at Connecticut, the Tigers conducted another two-a-day session on Wednesday.

After a session on the lower field, the Tigers returned to Unitas Stadium for the afternoon workout.

Tyler Bowen is one of the newest members of the Tiger coaching staff. He is working with the team’s tight ends and he feels he is fortunate to have a talented group.

“This is a very good group,” he says. “Everyone is working hard and they’re trying to get better. We’ve been making a lot of progress.”

The Tigers have four tight ends on the roster. In addition to senior James Oboh, sophomore Sean Mooney and red-shirt freshman Tanner Vallely, the Tigers have benefitted from the addition of graduate student Will Fleming, a transfer from the University of Akron.

Oboh has been the Tigers’ starter at tight end the last two seasons and has caught 29 passes for 478 yards and six touchdowns. According to Bowen, “James has been very solid during our pre-season. He is working hard and learning a lot of the little things that can make him be an even better tight end.”

A transfer from Akron, Fleming was a three-year performer at tight end for the Zips. Bowen says, “Will is a very nice addition for us. He played in a similar offense at Akron so he has been able to catch on. He could really help.”

Mooney and Vallely bring size to the tight end position. Mooney is a 6-6, 230-pound sophomore with plenty of potential. A native of Germantown, Md., Vallely stands at 6-6, 250-pounds.

“This could be a very group,” says Bowen. “They have the ability to make an impact this season.”

The Tigers return to the practice field on Thursday afternoon.

Former Terp Bowen joins Towson football staff

Posted on 24 April 2013 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. – A former graduate assistant coach at the University of Maryland, Tyler Bowen has been named as an assistant coach for the Towson University football team, it has been announced by Head Coach Rob Ambrose.

He will serve as the Tigers’ tight ends coach.

A native of Helena, Ga., Bowen played three years of football for the Terrapins before becoming a student assistant coach for Ralph Friedgen in 2010. In his season as a student assistant, he helped Maryland post a 9-4 record and a win in the Military Bowl.

“Tyler Bowen is an incredible experienced and talented young coach who has learned from some of the greatest minds in college football,” says Coach Ambrose.  “His versatility and enthusiasm are already being felt by our players and staff.”

An offensive tackle whose career was hampered by injuries, Bowen was an All-State offensive lineman at Telfair County High School in Georgia. He was recruited by a number of major college programs before deciding to attend Maryland.

After the 2009 season, it was determined that he couldn’t play football anymore due to injury problems. At that point, he joined the Terrapins’ coaching staff.

After he received his degree in 2010, he joined Coach Randy Edsall’s staff as a graduate assistant. During his two seasons as a G.A. at Maryland, he worked with the offensive linemen and the wide receivers. He spent most of his time working with the offense. In his final season at Maryland, he coached for Mike Locksley, the Terps’ Offensive Coordinator and a 1992 graduate of Towson.
