The Kean football team first played in 1970. The school name was Newark State College until 1973, and the team nickname was "Squires" prior to 1985 - hence the "N" and "S" logos on some of the earlier helmets.

*1 This design has uniform numerals on its left side only; the right side has a "KEAN"/claw logo (as represented below).
