The Cougars played a three-game schedule this past spring and went 0-3 against Benedictine (IL), Aurora (IL) and Eureka (IL).
Sources tell FootballScoop that Andy Lambert is expected to become the new leader of the program. be introduced as the new head coach of the program.
Lambert spent last season as a defensive analyst at Eastern Michigan and also has prior head coaching stops at Trinity International (NAIA – IL), Sterling (NAIA – KS) and most recently three seasons at Southern Nazarene (D-II – KS).
At each stop, Lambert was tasked with turning around a program.
During his final three seasons at Trinity International, Lambert went 22-12 and finished ranked 19th in the country among NAIA programs in 2003. He was 102-96 with his alma mater.
After TIU, Lambert went on to become the head coach at Sterling, where he went 71-52, leading the program to a conference title in 2013 and cementing his legacy as the winningest head coach in program history that season as well. He took over a program that hadn’t won a game in two seasons and led them to five wins in his very first year.
Then, at Southern Nazarene, Lambert helped lead the program to their best win total (4) since joining the D-II ranks by his second season.
We understand that the official announcement could come as early as later tonight.
