Within a matter of hours after the United States Military Academy announced that Georgia Southern head football coach Jeff Monken is going to be the next coach at Army, GSU officials held a press conference to address the coaching search on Tuesday afternoon at Paulson Stadium’s Bishop Field House. Athletics director Tom Kleinlein said he has already begun taking phone calls from potential candidates and has begun the search for the next coach of the Eagles. He said that interest in the job was higher than it’s ever been, in large part because of the program’s transition into the Football Bowl Subdivision Sun Belt Conference in 2014.
