App State to Conduct Search for Head Football Coach; Shawn Clark Named Interim Head Coach

App State Director of Athletics Doug Gillin announced Monday that he has commenced a search to find the next leader of the Mountaineers’ football program. Eliah Drinkwitz is leaving the university to accept a head coaching opportunity at another university.

“Appalachian State wishes Coach Drinkwitz all the best,” Chancellor Sheri Everts said. “Under his leadership, Appalachian State Football has enjoyed unprecedented national rankings. We know he will continue a successful career, and we will always call him a Mountaineer.”

“Our football team has made history all season long, and we thank Coach Drinkwitz for leading this program to new heights as we aspire to be the best Group of Five program in college football,” Gillin said.
