|Dwone Sanders named head football coach at Langston University|
Langston, Ok. – Langston University assistant head football coach and defensive coordinator Dwone Sanders was recently named head football coach by Mike Garrett, the university’s athletic director. Sanders, who started at Langston in 2010, replaces Robert “Mickey” Joseph, whose contract was not renewed at the end of the season.
“We are excited about having Sanders at the helm,” said Garrett. “We believe he has the ability to guide a good football program and make it a dominant one.”
“Langston University is a fine institution led by great people who are moving it in a forward direction where excellence is the goal," said Sanders. "I am pleased to be a part of this new direction that President (Kent J.) Smith and Mr. Garrett are taking our football program. The goal is to make the NAIA Football Championship game in Rome, Georgia. That’s the goal every year.”
A native of Bellechase, LA, Sanders played linebacker at McNeese State University. During his time there, he earned all-conference honors.
Prior to coming to Langston, Sanders completed coaching stints at Southeast Missouri State, Penn State, Utah State and Alabama State universities. He has coached in the 1993 Citrus Bowl (with Penn State) and earned a Recruiter of the Year award during his tenure at Utah State University in 1996.
He holds a bachelor’s degree from McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and a master’s degree from Southern University in Baton Rouge.
