Ian Dell is in his fourth season on the Lafayette coaching staff and his third on the defensive side of the ball. In July 2013, Dell was promoted from tight ends coach to defensive line coach.

In 2013, under Dell's tutelage Steve Mercado '16 achieved All-Patriot League Second-Team status. Mercado will be back for his senior season along with full-time starter Matt Rothrock and key contributors Andy Labudev, Darren Wright and Robin Cepeda.

In 2012, Dell returned to a Leopard program in which he was an All-Patriot League First-Team defensive lineman during his playing career.

A two-year starter, Dell was the team's defensive MVP in his senior season of 2009 while earning College Sporting News All-America Honorable Mention status.

Prior to his second stint on College Hill, Dell spent two seasons as a defensive line coach at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pa. where he coached All-American defensive end Allen Petros. While at Moravian, Dell recruited in central Pennsylvania and central New Jersey.
