Lyon College to announce football coach

Posted:

BATESVILLE (AP) - Lyon College in Batesville is set to announce its football coach who will oversee the resumption of football after a more than 60-year absence.

Lyon athletic director Kevin Jenkins says the new coach will be introduced to the public Monday afternoon during an on-campus ceremony.

Lyon College announced last month that it is resuming the football program that was dropped in 1951.

The college will sign recruits to come to campus and practice starting in the fall of 2014 and all will be redshirted with plans to start playing in fall 2015 in NAIA.
