Georgia Southern names head football coach - Lunsford earns his shot
Two impressive victories help remove interim title
After taking over as interim head coach, Chad Lunsford is named as head coach of the Georgia Southern football team during a press conference Monday.
On Oct. 22, former Georgia Southern head football coach Tyson Summers was relieved of his duties and a national search for a new coach began. As it turned out, the national search didn't even have to leave campus to find the new top Eagle. On Monday, Georgia Southern Director of Athletics Tom Kleinlein announced that Chad Lunsford, who has been serving as interim coach since Summers' firing, will have the interim tag lifted and will become the Eagles' tenth permanent head coach of the program's modern era.
