Healy Hired To Coach Charlotte
Former Austin Peay head coach, Will Healy, has been hired to coach the Charlotte 49ers.
Healy was hired after Mike Houston backed out of the job and decided to go to East Carolina.
"In my first conversation with Mike Hill, I told him that I would walk to Charlotte to talk to him about this job," said Healy. "This is a special place – a young football program with tremendous University leadership located in a first-class city."
Healy received the 2017 STATS FCS Eddie Robinson Award as the National FCS Coach of the Year and was named the OVC's Roy Kidd Coach of the Year.
"We are thrilled that Will and his family will be joining Niner Nation," said 49ers Director of Athletics Mike Hill. "When we set out to hire a coach, our goal was to find someone who will energize and transform the 49ers into a championship program."
