The Herald Wolves To Follow New Pack Leader Jonesboro, AR After a disappointing 26 point loss to conference rival Florida International, head coach Steve Roberts steps down from his position to hand over the coaching reigns to 1st year Head Coach Markus Frieske. Frieske Begins his tenure at Arkansas State (3-3) after a laundry list of associate and assistant positions at Washington, Air Force, Texas A&M, and most recently Iowa. Across an impressive 15 seasons experience Frieske tallies an astounding record of 137 wins and 43 losses with 9 bowl appearances. Arkansas State University held a press conference earlier today flooded with questions for the newest pack leader. The overwhelmed Freiske responded well to the field of questions which seems to be a good sign of confidence and optimism for the Red Wolves in the near future. When asked what his plans were to turn the 3-3 Red Wolves around, Frieske replied " We just have to do things right. We have to play smart football. Its not about how many points you score or how many big plays your team has, its about having a plan, executing it, and making the big play when your number is called." Senior starting Quarterback Corey Leonard was asked what his thoughts were on the coaching change and he hesitantly stated that " He would do his best to lead the team in a time of great confusion, misdirection, and abandonment." The Red Wolves square up next against Big East powerhouse Louisville (4-3). Although Louisville hasn't lived up to their potential this season they hope to turn it around against the wolves. Frieske was asked to comment on Louisville and noted that " Although he has never seen them play he and the coaches are working around the clock to gameplan against the cardinals." When senior defensive end and 2008 Sun Belt Defensive MVP Alex Carrington commented on the recent coaching change and its potential change in defensive gameplan, he stated " We just have to go out there and play tough. We know our abilities. We can't solely rely on the coach to make plays for us. We make the plays. It's on us." I assure you that the game will be ground breaking in many ways. Does Frieske have what it takes to turn this program in the right direction? Or will he howl at the moon for help? Tune in to your regional programmer on October 31st.
