RALEIGH, N.C. – Saint Augustine’s University has removed the interim tag and officially named Tim Chavous as head football coach on Friday, Feb. 19, 2016.sau tim chavous hsChavous

Chavous coached the Falcons for eight games on an interim basis in the 2015 season. He guided the Falcons to their only victory of the season, a 31-24 win over crosstown rival Shaw University on Nov. 7, 2015.

“After his performance as an interim coach during the season, and his relationship with the student-athletes, the committee thought it would be in the best interest of the institution to extend his contract,” Falcons’ Athletic Director George Williams said.

Chavous has been with the football program for four seasons, including three full seasons as running backs coach. Under his guidance, standout tailback Roderick Davenport II became the University’s career rushing leader in the modern era this past season, gaining 2,809 yards.

A St. Petersburg, Fla., native, Chavous has been the team’s academic coordinator since he arrived at Saint Augustine’s University in 2012. The Falcons have thrived in the classroom under Chavous, winning three consecutive awards for having the highest grade point average among all CIAA football teams.

Before coming to Saint Augustine’s University, Chavous was an assistant offensive coordinator and running backs coach at Saint Paul’s College from 2005 to 2011.
