MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - After 12 years behind the scenes at Morehead State, Rob Tenyer is now in charge of the Eagles' program.
That means more responsibilities, but Tenyer feels he's ready because he's "worn a lot of different hats" at Morehead. Tenyer most recently was the Eagles' offensive coordinator, guiding a unit that has led the Pioneer League in scoring, total yardage and passing yards the past two seasons.
Tenyer's priority besides reversing last year's 4-7 record is replacing seven offensive starters including quarterback Zach Lewis, who passed for 2,955 yards and 25 touchdowns. Fortunately for Morehead State, junior tailback Rees Macshara returns after rushing for 1,013 yards.
An experienced defense could help the Eagles rebound; there was room for improvement after allowing an average of 428.4 yards per game last season.
