PINE BLUFF, Ark. (AP) -Former Washington Redskins linebacker Monte Coleman was introduced as the new football coach at Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Monday, the same day Mo Forte was fired.
Coleman played for the Redskins from 1979-94, winning three Super Bowls. The Pine Bluff native, who played college football at Central Arkansas, had been the Golden Lions' defensive coordinator this past season.
Forte was 21-22 in four seasons, and the Golden Lions beat Texas Southern 20-10 Saturday to finish 4-7. Pine Bluff, which plays in the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA), finished the year with three straight wins.
Forte led the Golden Lions to the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship game in 2006, but coached a good part of the season from the press box because of a heart ailment.
