The Lincoln University Athletic Department and Athletic Director Harry Stinson III is proud to announce the hiring of Joshua Dean as the institution’s next Head Football Coach.
Coach Dean brings nine years of collegiate coaching experience. Before his coaching career started, Dean played linebacker in the NFL from 2005 to 2006 where he was a free agent signee for the Chicago Bears under head coach Lovie Smith. He becomes the fifth Lincoln Head Football Coach since the program’s revival in 2008 and the 24th head coach in the program’s 123-year history.
“We are excited to welcome Josh Dean to the Lincoln Lion family,” said Lincoln Athletic Director, Harry Stinson III. “He is a proven winner who shares in our core values and vision and will help direct us to where we would like our football program to be. His commitment to academic and athletic excellence, his defensive background, ability to lead and recruiting approach will have an immediate impact on our football program and I’m excited to see where he will lead our athletic teams.
Dean joins the Lincoln staff following a successful stint as the Defensive Line Coach at Campbellsville University in Kentucky.
