Lamb takes over at Southern Utah

Cedar City, UT (Sports Network) - Southern Utah University has named Ed Lamb as its new head football coach.

Lamb takes over for Wes Meier, who did not have his contract renewed for the 2008 season. The Thunderbirds finished the 2007 season 0-11.

Lamb, who is currently special teams coordinator, recruiting coordinator and defensive backs coach at the University of San Diego, will take over the reins of the program immediately.

Lamb helped guide San Diego to three consecutive Pioneer League championships as well as back-to-back NCAA Division I-AA Mid-Major National Championships, in 2005 and 2006.

"I feel I have a great opportunity ahead of me here at SUU," Lamb said. "We will have the goals to have a winning record, to win conference championships and to be selected for the national playoffs. To reach those goals we'll work hard, we'll recruit the best student-athletes we can get and we will strive to accomplish our goals sooner rather than later."
