ST. JOSEPH, Mo.
Missouri Western football offensive coordinator Chet Pobolish has been named the new head coach at Southwestern Oklahoma State, the school announced on Monday afternoon.
Pobolish's offense averaged 359 yards and 28 points per game this season. Missouri Western’s 216.7 rushing yards per game were the second most in the MIAA. The offense scored at least 40 points in five-consecutive games, include a 65 point outburst against Northeastern State on September 30.
He leaves the university after just one season.
"I'm super pumped for Chet and his wonderful family,” MWSU head coach Matt Williamson said in a press release. “Southwestern Oklahoma State is getting a phenomenal football coach with exceptional effort. Chet's so much more than just a football coach, he's a great friend of mine and a tremendous person. He will do an incredible job there and I wish him the best."
A national search for Pobolish's replacement will begin immediately.
