Ball State named New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach Mike Neu as the team’s new head coach on Thursday.

Neu gradated from the school in 1994 and is a former Ball State quarterback. He will take the place of former head coach Pete Lembo, who left to coach at Maryland last month.

Neu completed his career at Ball State as the Cardinals’ all-time leading passer with 6,221 yards and 43 touchdown passes. Neu went on to play in the Arena Football League for two seasons before he began coaching in the AFL.

Neu spent the past two seasons with the Saints.
