BREAKING: Ball State May Have a New Head Coach

Multiple unrelated sources are confirming to OTP that BSU has reached an agreement with the next coach of the football program. Don’t bother bracing yourself… you’ve never heard of him. Pete Lembo will be named head coach in the near future (as early as Friday) by the administration. Is it official? No. Absolutely not. Is it close enough that I feel comfortable running it? I do.

Lembo comes to the Cardinals from Elon, and he also coached for a stint at Lehigh, compiling a career record of 79-36. Elon has finished the season ranked in the Top 25 for FCS twice during his five seasons there. There is no information to share about length of contract or salary for Lembo that may be on the table.

So a potential welcome to Coach Lembo, and we’ll have more info as this develops.

  1. Looks like Mike Leach’s bespectacled doppelganger in that photo…

  2. Pending it becoming official, not a bad hire by Tom Collins. It’s always a good idea to hire young coaches on the rise over a retread.

  3. Congrats on the publicity, dude! Fox 59 in Indy and now the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel are citing your report as having broken the story.

  4. Ball State just made the hiring official, congrats on breaking the story!
