STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) - Georgia Southern has named Sam Houston State coach Willie Fritz to lead the Eagles into their new era as a Football Bowl Subdivision team.

Fritz, who was 40-15 in four years with Sam Houston State, will succeed Jeff Monken, who was named Army's coach on Dec. 24.

The 53-year-old Fritz was introduced at a news conference on Friday. Fritz led Sam Houston State to the Football Championship Subdivision championship game in 2011 and 2012, losing both years to North Dakota State.

Georgia Southern president Brooks Keel said Fritz is a ''perfect fit for this program.''

Georgia Southern, which won six FCS national championships, is moving to the Sun Belt Conference. Fritz says his challenge is to bring Georgia Southern the same level of success as a FBS team.
