THIS IS EPISODE 357 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Chad Lunsford is the head football coach at Georgia Southern. The 2019 campaign marks his 11th season overall, and seventh in his current stint at Georgia Southern. Lunsford was promoted from assistant head coach to interim head coach in October 2017, and named the school’s 10th full-time head coach in the modern era in November 2017.
In 2018, Lunsford led the Eagles to the biggest turnaround in the FBS, from two wins in 2017 to a 10-3 finish in 2018, including a Racom Media Camellia Bowl win over Eastern Michigan, 23-21.
In 2019, his club opens the season Aug. 31 at LSU and has a road game at Minnesota on Sept. 14 before embarking on a tough Sun Belt Conference schedule.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Coach Lunsford about the turnaround his club had last year and preparing for this upcoming 2019 season. We also hear his powerful testimony of faith, the daily disciplines he instills to his team, and how his priorities got out of order during his early coaching days.
