DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Drake introduced Rick Fox as its 26th head football coach on Monday in place of Chris Creighton, who last week accepted the Eastern Michigan job. Fox spent the past six seasons on Creighton’s staff as the offensive line and special teams coach. He also served as Creighton’s assistant head coach for the past three years.

Drake athletic director Sandy Hatfield-Clubb says the Bulldogs could have scoured the country and not have found a better fit than Fox. Drake went 44-22 under Creighton, including two titles in the FCS-affiliated Pioneer Football League.
