Monken Introduced at Army

When Jeff Monken arrived for his interview during Army’s coaching search, he brought with him impressive credentials, an offensive mindset, and a driven determination.

He also knew exactly what to say and when to say it.

“What you will find with Jeff is that there aren’t a whole lot of details that he doesn’t already know the answer to,” Black Knights athletic director Boo Corrigan said. “He understands what this is. He didn’t come here not to win.”

Even though he has a lot of work ahead of him to reach that point.

A week after his hire, Monken was formally introduced as Army’s new coach on Monday. He is the 37th coach of the Black Knights, and 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 there, and was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award in 2012.

Here is a piece from Football Scoop………

Jeff Monken was introduced as Army’s 37th head football coach on Monday, and day one promised to be the end of an era that’s seen the Black Knights suffer 17 losing seasons in the last 18 years. 

“We’re going to work through this process in the coming days and weeks to put together a program that our Army is going to be proud of. Our Army deserves the best, and we’re going to give them that.”

Monken expressed pride and gratitude to be the head coach not just at West Point, but for West Point. He pledged to find players who felt the same pride and gratitude he did.

……………….Monken said his offense would be a replica of what he learned under Paul Johnson and Navy and Georgia Tech.
