Georgia Southern signs Chris Hatcher

My Alma Mata - Georgia Southern University had a devistating blow to it's football program earlier this month when head coach, Brian VanGorder resigned to accept a position with the Atlanta Falcons. This weekend, GSU announced signing Chris Hatcher as the new head coach.

Hatcher has served as the head coach at Valdosta State University (which was Georgia Southern's cross state rival when both schools originally launched football teams, but then Valdosta State decided they didn't want to play against the Eagles anymore).
Under Hatcher, Valdosta State won the national title in 2004, was runner-up in 2002, and made the playoffs 6 times.

Official Press Release

Go Eagles!
