There's a good reason Austin Peay's spring football practices isn't beginning today as planned.
The Sports Network reports the Ohio Valley Conference program will introduce its new head football coach at a news conference on campus Tuesday. APSU is expected to name Central
Michigan defensive backs coach Kirby Cannon as the new coach.
Cannon has spent the last three seasons at Central Michigan. Previously, he was the head coach at Missouri S&T for 11 seasons from 1999-2009, compiling a 46-86 record, and was named Great Lakes Football Conference Coach of the Year in 2008 after leading the Miners to their first conference title since 1983.
Cannon would inherit a team coming off a 2-9 record and a last-place finish in the OVC.
