BBS Alumni, Austin Peay Head Coach Will Healy, was recently named FCS national coach of year. This is Healy’s second year as head coach for Austin Peay State University.
“I’m overrated in that I’ve surrounded myself with great people, and they’re the reason we were able to do what we did this season,” said Healy of receiving this recognition.
The 32-year old Healy is a Boyd Buchanan graduate and former University of Tennessee at Chattanooga assistant coach. He took over an Austin Peay program that had lost 16 straight games and finished 0-11 in his first year as coach. This season the Governors, who had won just one game in the previous four seasons, went 8-4 overall, including 8-1 against FCS competition, and narrowly missed out on the playoffs.
