Eagles' Monken candidate for Army job

Written by  Thursday, 19 December 2013 10:54

Jeff MonkenJeff Monken  Eagle Athletic Director Tom Kleinlein said Georgia Southern has given Army permission to talk to Monken about the job.  Since Monken is a state employee and is under contract until the end of the year, Army had to have permission to interview Monken.


  Kleinlein said Monken means a lot to the program and is its focal point. 


  Since becoming Eagles head football coach four years ago, Monken has a record of 38 wins to 16 losses and three trips to the semifinals of the Football Championship Subdivision.  The highlight of this past season was the 26 to 20 win over the Florida Gators in Gainesville, Florida.  After the Eagles win the league’s regular season championship, he was named Southern Conference Coach of the year in 2011.


  For six years the 46 year old Monken was assistant coach to Paul Johnson at Navy and Georgia Tech.


  Ellerson finished last season with a 3 and 9 record, including a 12thstraight loss to its rival Navy.


  Other potential candidates, according to ArmySports.com, are former Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe, Navy offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, Central Florida offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe, Ohio State co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner and New York Jets special teams coach Ben Kowitca.
