Akron - Staff Tracker (1)

Four games into his fifth season leading the program, after initially taking over the program midway through the 2017 season, Georgia Southern fired Chad Lunsford early on in the 2021 season. He was 28-21 overall leading the program, including a 1-3 start to this past fall.  

With a head start on their search, the Eagles locked up former USC head coach Clay Helton as their new head coach in early November.

Here, on the Oregon Staff Tracker page, we lay out the new staff and also provide some perspective by noting who coached the position on the previous staff.
