Chris Hatcher was introduced as the new football coach by President Andrew Westmoreland and Martin Newton, athletic director. See the press conference here:
Hatcher comes to Samford from Murray State, where he’d spent four years after his national championship run at Valdosta State. Hatcher takes over the job from Pat Sullivan, who resigned earlier this month as the winningest coach in Samford history. Sullivan plans to remain at Samford as an advisor for campus and community development.
