Eastern Washington Eagles (12-2)


Continuity follows Best's hiring as Eastern Washington coach

(STATS) - Aaron Best's introduction as Eastern Washington's new coach Monday was a formality.

An introduction was hardly necessary because the soon-to-be 39-year-old is well-known and well-respected within the Eagles' nationally strong program, having spent 20 of the last 21 seasons as either a player or an assistant coach.

The first-time head coach, and 21st in Eastern Washington history after being promoted Saturday, succeeds Beau Baldwin, who resigned January 16 to become Cal's offensive coordinator.
