Instant Peay Play: New head coach for APSU Football Govs won’t be magic solution

 

Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – A week ago Austin Peay State University announced that football head coach Kirby Cannon would be relieved of his duties as head coach after three seasons, and an overall win-loss record of 1-34, but that in of itself won’t fix a program that has suffered through 29 losing seasons over the past 31 years.

But with the exception of two or three spans in its 79-year football history Austin Peay has struggled to win on the gridiron, with only 18 winning seasons (three more that finished at .500) for the Governors and an overall record of 275-520-16 for a .349 winning percentage.
