Davenport University introduced Lou Esposito as the school's first ever football coach at a press conference this morning.

The announcement was held in the student center on the W.A. Lettinga Campus in Caledonia.

Esposito was the Defensive Coordinator for Ferris State University Football in 2013. He also spent time coaching at Western Michigan University as well as a number of other stops.

Davenport University has comments from the new coach:

"I am incredibly honored and blessed for the opportunity that Davenport University has given me," said Esposito. "There are not a lot of coaches that have the opportunity to start from the bottom up and I am confident that with the great administrative support and staff and coaches that are already here, we will be successful. The vision that President Pappas, Mike Volk and Paul Lowden have shared, it's the same that I have."

Good luck, Coach Esposito!
