LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -Bucknell has hired Joe Susan as its next football coach, luring back a former Bison assistant to take over a program coming off three straight losing seasons.
A team spokesman says Susan is to be introduced at a news conference Wednesday evening at Bucknell.
Susan spent the last nine seasons as an assistant at Rutgers, most recently coaching tight ends and serving as recruiting coordinator. The veteran coach was also an assistant at Bucknell from 1981-90.
Susan takes over for Tim Landis, who left Bucknell last month to take an assistant coaching job at San Jose State.
Bucknell, a Patriot League school, finished 4-7 last season. The Bison haven’t had a winning record since going 6-5 in 2006.
