GSU will introduce Trent Miles today

Trent Miles will be introduced as Georgia State’s new football coach at 11:30 a.m. today at the Sports Arena.

The public are welcome to attend the free event.

I tweeted from @ajcgsu last night, asking what questions you would like asked of Miles, who is coming to Georgia State from Indiana State, where he engineered one of the more impressive turnarounds in college football.

Miles, who played at Indiana State, took over a program that was underfunded and stuck in a losing rut of 1-32 and turned it into a winning program within three years.

Georgia State has gone 10-23 in its first three years. It will move up a level to the FBS this year, where it will play in the Sun Belt.

Very much looking forward to meeting CTM today. We’ve heard that he’ll be bringing his DC Jesse Minter with him and I’m very interested to see who his OC is.

Love that he’s flexible with his offense, utilizing the players that he has and molding a scheme around them.

His defense at Indiana State was the #6 total defense in FCS this year and he is supposed to bring his DC with him.

They should really consider bringin this young coach Walt Vaugh to their staff he is a hell of a coach. I have seen him at different clinics. He would be a great fit for the program for recuiting and skill set I think he is from the metro area he is well respected
