Georgia Southern Eagles Roster 2019 Eagles Roster

Head Coach: Chad Lunsford        2017 Salary: $530,000        Offensive Coordinator: Bob DeBesse       Defensive Coordinator: Scot Sloan         

Stadium: Allen E. Paulson Stadium       Surface: Turf        City: Statesboro        State: Georgia

The Georgia Southern Eagles are very glad to turn the page on last season. The Eagles won only two games and experienced a coaching change midseason. The Eagles did not win for the first time until their eleventh game of the season, costing head coach Tyson Summers his job.

Running the ball is the name of game for Georgia Southern this year. Shai Werts will call the signals and he is a sound rushing quarterback who struggles when asked to throw. The Eagles are running behind an experienced offensive line that should spur some improvement this season. The Eagles have multiple running backs that should see carries in a diverse rushing attack. Georgia Southern will be running the option this season.

Defensive coordinator Scot Sloan comes over from conference rival Appalachian State. His defenses achieved a measure of success there so it is a quality hire for the Eagles. The secondary features three seniors as the Eagles figure to clamp down on opposing offenses. Still, the Eagles have struggled on the defensive side of the ball in recent seasons and need to improve in this area to rebound.

The Eagles made some improvements when Chad Lunsford took over midway through last season that included a 52-point win against South Alabama. Given a full season at the helm, the Eagles will likely be better than last season. Still, the program remains a long way from its glory days of the past. The Eagles have some winnable non-conference games so two wins is a floor for this team.
