KINGSVILLE - It appears that former A&M-Kingsville Head Coach Bo Atterberry has found a new coaching gig, at his old school, as Atterberry is reportedly accepting the Southeastern Oklahoma Defensive Coordinator job.
His resignation from A&M-Kingsville was effective December 31, 2012.
Atterberry was the Defensive Coordinator for the Savage Storm before being named the Javelinas Head Coach.
Atterberry directed Javelina football for the past six seasons and leaves the coaching post with many accomplishments. Posting a mark of 41-28, including four consecutive winning seasons, Atterberry led the 2012 Javelinas to a third-place finish in the Lone Star Conference, a Kanza Bowl bid, and he was named Lone Star Conference co-Coach of the Year.
Beginning with the second game of the 2009 season, Atterberry led the Javelinas to 27 consecutive Top 25 rankings, and in 2009 and 2010 his Javelinas defeated six ranked opponents along the way to consecutive NCAA playoff appearances. His win total through six seasons was impressive, equaling that of College Football Hall of Fame coach Gil Steinke and Javelina Hall of Fame coach Richard Cundiff in their first six campaigns with the Javelinas.
Atterberry's 2009 Javelinas won the Lone Star Conference title, and he was a finalist for the Liberty Mutual National Coach of Year that same year. He guided the 2010 Javelinas to a 10-2 mark, the program's first 10-win regular season in 21 years, and he was named the American Football Coaches Association Regional Coach of the Year.
Off the field, Atterberry consistently supported community and university initiatives, and during his tenure Javelina Athletics won the Lone Star Conference Award of Excellence for community engagement and game-day atmosphere three consecutive years, the LSC SAAC Cup every year since inception, and in 2010 led the nation in per game football attendance.
