This Week's Speaker

Coach Brian Bohannon, Kennesaw State University

After becoming the first head football coach in the history of Kennesaw State University, Brian Bohannon has taken the Owls to heights never seen by a start-up football program.

In just four short years, Bohannon has led the Owls to a 37-12 record, back-to-back Big South Conference championships and consecutive appearances in the quarterfinals of the FCS Playoffs.

After putting the world on notice in 2017 with a 12-2 season, the outright Big South Conference title and two FCS Playoffs victories, the Owls somehow outdid themselves during the 2018 campaign. Ranked No. 2 in the nation for much of the year, KSU earned the No. 4 overall seed in the playoffs and took an 11-game winning to a second consecutive quarterfinal appearance where they held the third-longest home streak in the nation that dated back over two calendar years.

While the Owls have dominated on the field, Bohannon continues to collect accolades, earning the AFCA FCS National Coach of the Year following the 2017 season and earned AFCA District Coach of the Year after the 2018 campaign to go along with back-to-back Big South Conference Coach of the Year honors.

After graduating the inaugural signing class this year, Bohannon has a new challenge ahead as the Owls go for an outright three-peat championship in 2019, something never done in the history of the Big South Conference.
