The Triple Option Lives…..Monken Taking Over at Army

by John Furgele

Jeff Monken is leaving Georgia Southern and bringing the triple option to West Point.   Late Tuesday evening, Monken accepted the head coaching position for the Black Knights and will be formally introduced at a presser on December 30.   In four seasons at Georgia Southern, the Eagles went 38-16, making the Division 1-AA semifinals two times.   This year, GSU played as a transitional school but did beat Florida in its finale.    In 2014, Georgia Southern moves to the Sun Belt along with old rival Appalachian State.  

Army is coming off a 3-9 season and lost to Navy for the 12th straight time on December 14.   Former coach was Rich Ellerson was dismissed the next day.
