McGovern would finish his career with 24 total interceptions, which was tied for the most in Division I-AA history at the time, in addition to totaling 225 tackles and 25 pass breakups.
He went into coaching following his graduation, and is currently the linebackers coach for the New York Giants.
He totaled 443 tackles over the course of his collegiate career, including a school-record 182 tackles as a senior in 1988. McGovern was a part of teams which compiled an overall record of 34-9-1, including three Lambert Cup winners (1986, 1987, 1988), two Colonial League champions (1986, 1987) and the undefeated 1987 squad which was ranked No. 1 in the final NCAA national poll.
