WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - A week after his hire, Jeff Monken was formally introduced as Army's new coach on Monday.
Monken is the 37th coach of the Black Knights, and he inherits a program that went 3-9 this season, ending the campaign with a 34-7 loss to Navy.
Monken arrives at West Point from Georgia Southern, an FCS program where he went 38-16 in four seasons. The Eagles will join the Sun Belt Conference next year and be members of FBS thanks in part to Monken's efforts. He won at least 10 games in each of their first three seasons at Georgia Southern, and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award in 2012.
Army ended the season on a five-game losing streak, and lost both of its game vs. other service academies, including a 42-28 defeat at Air Force.
