Drinkwitz Introductory Press Conference Today (2018-12-17 12:51:45)

New Appalachian State football head coach Eliah Drinkwitz will be formally introduced in a press conference Monday, Dec. 17, at the Ricks Athletics Complex in Boone.

The press conference will take place at 11 a.m., on the fifth floor of the building, overlooking Kidd Brewer Stadium from the west side club level. The event will be open to media and the public. Parking for media and guests will be available in Stadium Lot adjacent to Kidd Brewer Stadium.

Director of Athletics Doug Gillin will introduce Drinkwitz, who will provide comments and answer questions from reporters in attendance.

Drinkwitz, who served as NC State's offensive coordinator the past three years and has been a member of championship staffs at Boise State, Arkansas State and Auburn, was named the 21st head coach of the App State football program Thursday.

App State capped an historic 11-2 season with a 45-13 win over Middle Tennessee in Saturday's New Orleans Bowl, under the direction of interim head coach Mark Ivey. It was the Mountaineers' fourth bowl win in as many years, a feat unmatched in the history of teams transitioning to the FBS level.
