David Marc "Dave" Cohen (born October 6, 1966) is the current defensive line coach at Wake Forest University. Cohen comes to Wake after a controversial stint as the former defensive coordinator at Rutgers University, after serving one year as linebackers coach. He was formerly the defensive coordinator for the Western Michigan Broncos football team and the final head coach of Hofstra University's football program. He coached the Pride from 2006 through 2009, when Hofstra announced that it was dropping football due to economic and popularity considerations, just days after the season. In his five seasons as head coach, Cohen compiled an 18–27 overall record.
Cohen was born in Huntington, New York, and attended Commack High School in Long Island, New York from 1980–1984. He then attended Long Island University C.W. Post Campus from 1984–1988 where he earned a bachelor's degree in business management. Cohen then received his master's degree in education administration from the University of Albany in 1990.
