Georgia Southern’s Jeff Monken to be named Army coach
Army is expected to name Georgia Southern’s Jeff Monken as its new head coach.
Monken took over the Eagles in 2010 and was 38-16 in four seasons, winning double-digit games and making the semifinals of the FCS Playoffs each of his first three seasons. Georgia Southern finished 2013 just 7-4, but they became the first FCS team to ever defeat Florida.
Prior to GSU, Monken was an assistant at Navy under Paul Johnson from 2002-07. He followed Johnson to Georgia Tech in 2008, before taking the Georgia Southern job.
Monken’s triple option-based offense and his experience coaching at a service academy made him a top target for Army.
The cousin of current Southern Mississippi head coach Todd Monken, he replaces Rich Ellerson who was fired last week after a 20-41 record in five seasons with the Black Knights.
Ohio State co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner, Jets special teams coordinator Ben Kotwica and Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan were among the others considered for the Army job.
