Army Season Preview Last Year's Record: 3-9 Last Bowl: 1996 Independence Bowl vs. Auburn - L 29-32 Head Coach: Rich Ellerson, 1st year(60-41 in FCS @ Cal Poly) Head coach Rich Ellerson steps into a tremendous situation. Keep in mind Ellerson's Cal Poly team almost upset Wisconsin last year if not for 3 crucial missed xp's. Former head coach Stan Brock made the right move switching to the option last year but it didn't catch on untilthe 5th game and Army was 3-5 after that with two close losses. Last year they had just 8 returning starters and have 12 this year. The knights were also -14 in TO's. If they catch a few breaks, Army could actually have their first winning season since 1996. - Phil Steele's 2009 College Football Preview Ten Best Army Players(per Scouts.com) 1..DE Josh McNary, Jr. 2.
