DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -Chris Creighton has left Wabash College coach to take over as Drake's football coach, Wabash said Thursday.
Creighton was 63-15 in seven seasons at Wabash, which reached the NCAA Division III quarterfinals this season before losing to eventual champion Wisconsin-Whitewater.
He replaces Steve Loney, who finished 6-5 in one season as Drake's interim coach after Rob Ash left the school to coach Montana State.
``This was a really hard decision to make,'' Creighton said. ``These last seven years at Wabash have been the best years of my life, both on the field and off the field.''
Drake is a non-scholarship program in the Football Championship Subdivision, formerly Division I-AA. It has scheduled a press conference Friday to introduce Creighton.
Drake athletic director Sandy Hatfield Clubb declined comment Thursday night.
