The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga made the hiring of new head football coach Tom Arth official in a release this morning.
Arth was the 2016 NCAA Division III Coach of the Year at John Carroll University in University Heights, Ohio. He went 40-8 in four seasons with the program and had three playoff appearances in his time as head coach of his alma mater, which included top-five finishes in 2014 (No. 5) and 2016 (No. 3).
"When we started this search, we were looking for proven winners who could continue the rise of Chattanooga football," vice chancellor and athletic director David Blackburn said in the release. "Tom Arth quickly separated himself from an impressive pool of candidates. He is an outstanding man of character, knows football and will be a tremendous influence on our student-athletes."
Arth will be introduced as the new head coach Tuesday at noon at the Stadium Club at Finley Stadium.
