Presbyterian College has a new head football coach – and it’s a familiar face for those who have followed the program.
Tommy Spangler, who was head coach of the Blue Hose from 2001-06, and has been defensive coordinator for the team since 2013, was promoted to head coach of the program Tuesday by athletic director Brian Reese.
“I’m ecstatic about this opportunity and I know the people at Presbyterian College are as well,” said Spangler in a press release. “I’ve been coaching for over 30 years and the best of those years have been spent at PC.”
In his previous stint as head coach (2001-06), Spangler went 42-24, and his .571 winning percentage still stands as the best in the program’s history. His team went 7-4 in 2006, one year after winning the South Atlantic Conference title with a 10-2 record. The 2005 squad also earned the program’s first-ever trip to the NCAA Division II playoffs, a top-10 ranking, and conference Coach of the Year honors.
