Army announced Jeff Monken as head coach on Tuesday morning.
Monken, who spent the past four seasons at Georgia Southern, is a nice schematic fit for the option-leaning service academy. Monken, of course, led the Eagles to a 26-20 upset win over Florida earlier this season. The cousin of Southern Miss head coach Todd Monken served as an assistant at Navy from 2002-07. "I am thrilled to accept the head coaching position at West Point," said Monken in a statement. "Not only is the United States Military Academy one of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world, it boasts one of the nation's richest, most historic traditions in all of college football. I am anxious to get started ... meet our players, put our coaching staff in place, and begin preparations for the 2014 football season."
