"Truly a SPECIAL team here at Lyon," the program tweeted.

Lyon hired Sweet as offensive coordinator this past offseason after Sweet spent one season as the offensive line coach at FCS Norfolk State University in Virginia. He previously spent ten seasons as an offensive line coach in the Canadian Football League.
