UAPB's Football Head Coach Monte Coleman Contract Given A Two-Year Extension

MonteColeman_zpsl2po64wx.jpgPINE BLUFF, AR - The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff head football coach Monte Coleman has been given a two-year extension, per Athletic Director Lonza Hardy Jr.

Coleman, who has led the Golden Lion football team since the 2008 season, had a three-year contract that expired on December 31st. Coleman led the Golden Lions to win the SWAC championship in 2012.

This past season in 2015, he led the Golden Lions to a 2-9 record and over the three years, has an 8-25 record. It was the third losing season for the Lions since the championship win in 2012, which according to a source, led to the three-year contract.

"Financial obstacles were part of why we're giving Coleman two more years. UAPB had only 38 scholarships in 2015," said AD Lonza Hardy. "All but one SWAC team (Mississippi Valley State University) was better funded scholarship-wise than UAPB was this year."

Coleman's overall record is 37-52 throughout his years of coaching at UAPB.

On December 20, 2015, Coleman was inducted into the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame. He played linebacker for sixteen seasons with the Redskins from 1979 to 1994.
