Ball State hires Pete Lembo

The last few weeks it seems like there's been a mass exodus of coaches leaving the MAC conference.  Jerry Kill left Northern Illinois for Minnesota, Al Golden said goodbye to Temple to take the Miami job, and Mike Haywood left Miami (OH) to take over in Pittsburgh.  So far this offseason Ball State was the only school in the conference to lose its head coach by choice, and now it has found a replacement.

Ball State announced on Sunday that it had hired Pete Lembo to take over the program.

"We are extremely excited to have Pete Lembo join the Ball State family,” said Ball State athletic director Tom Collins in a statement. “The search for our next football coach included talking to a number of people in the football world. Coach Lembo’s name and credentials continued to surface as an outstanding candidate for Ball State University. We are looking forward to his contribution to the program and looking forward to getting started in preparation for Ball State football 2011.”

Lembo comes to Ball State from Elon, where he went 35-22 in five seasons.  Before that Lembo was the head coach at Lehigh, going 44-14 in five seasons. Ball State will be the first time Lembo has coached on the FBS level, either as a head coach or assistant.  Of course, considering it's Ball State, he probably won't even notice the difference.

It wasn't that long ago that Brady Hoke had Ball State looking at an undefeated season before a late season loss, and Ball State was the strongest team in the always underrated MAC. Why this writer choose to end his supposed "news" column with some snarky comment is befuddling to me.

His girlfriend probably picked up something from someone else after a wild weekend on a MAC school's campus. Of course, considering he's a tool, he probably won't even notice the difference.
