Former Bowie State coach Michael Lynn has been named football coach at Annapolis Area Christian School.
Lynn, a Morgan State graduate, coached the Bulldogs to a 26-25 record between 2004 and 2008. They finished 8-4 in 2005 and made their first bowl appearance in 36 years, falling to Tuskegee, 28-26, in the Pioneer Bowl.
Since then, Lynn served as football team coordinator at Maryland for two years and director of football operations at Morgan State for two years. Last fall, he was an assistant coach at Dunbar.
An offensive lineman at Morgan, Lynn was also an assistant coach at Morgan for five years. He was announced as the Eagles new coach Friday. He will also teach physical education.
"I'm dedicated to maintaining a reputation for the football program that is built on a strong Christian faith, uncompromising ethics, collaboration and excellence in all we do," Lynn said in a news release. "This leads to team championships and to producing champions in life."
Lynn replaces Ken Lucas, who led the Eagles to the MIAA B Conference championship in 2011 and C Conference titles in 2009 and 2010. Last season, the Eagles finished 3-7 last season in the C Conference after dropping down from the B Conference, in which they did not win a game in 2012.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
