Multiple reports Monday all lead to the same conclusion at Georgia Southern. Chad Lunsford, who had been named the interim head coach, will be the program’s full-time head coach.
Lunsford was named the interim coach of the Eagles on October 22 following the removal of former head coach Tyson Summers. After taking over a program that struggled to a record of 0-6, Summers coached Georgia Southern to a 2-3 finish to the season with one game left to play this week against Coastal Carolina.
Lunsford has been with the Georgia Southern football program for five years while holding multiple positions during that span. Prior to his return to Georgia Southern, where he worked when the program was an FCS program, Lunsford worked at Auburn for four seasons as a director of player personnel and assisting with recruiting.
