Chris Pincince is in his fourth season on the Crusaders' coaching staff, and his second year as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. In 2006, he directed a Holy Cross offense which led the Patriot League in total yards (384.4 yards per game) and passing yards (271.5 yards per game), while standing third in the conference in scoring (25.0 points per game). During his first two seasons at Holy Cross, Pincince served as the team's wide receivers coach. Over those two seasons, Pincince led a group which included All-Patriot League wide out Sean Gruber, who finished his career as the Crusaders' all-time leader with 22 career touchdown catches. Pincince came to Holy Cross from Ursinus College, where he served as offensive coordinator in 2003. While at Ursinus, Pincince coached Gary Sheffield, who was among the Centennial Conference's leaders in rushing yards. Prior to his time at Ursinus, Pincince served as the quarterbacks coach at Brown University in 2002.

His offense at New Haven averaged 30.1 points and 355.2 yards per game during his three-year tenure. One of the Chargers' biggest wins was a victory at Villanova in 2001, over the previously unbeaten and nationally ranked Wildcats. Pincince also served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Fairfield University (1997-1998) and the wide receivers coach at New Haven (1995-1996). He helped lead Fairfield to the 1998 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference title, while in 1995 he helped New Haven to an appearance in the NCAA Division II playoffs. Pincince is a 1994 graduate of Boston University, where he was a member of the Terriers' 1993 Yankee Conference Championship team, while playing on squads which made two trips to the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs.
