Georgia State names Tony Samuel as new outside linebackers coach
Samuel, 59, was out of coaching this past year after being let go at Southeast Missouri State at the conclusion of the 2013 season. He has a 65-117 record as a head coach.
He went 31-60 at Southeast Missouri State in eight seasons. He was also let go at New Mexico State after the 2004 season following a 34-57 mark in eight seasons.
Prior to that, Samuel was defensive line coach at Stanford for two seasons and coached the position at Western Michigan from 1982-83. A native of Trinidad and Tobago, he played defensive end at Nebraska from 1974-77.
Samuel joins Georgia State coach Trent Miles, who has a 1-23 record in the program’s first two FBS seasons. The Panthers return 17 starters, including senior starting quarterback, who led the Sun Belt in passing yards last year.
