JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – It was a new beginning for Atlantic Coast Monday afternoon as the football team opened spring practice under new head coach Matt Elliott.
Elliott is the second head coach in the program’s history, taking over for Kevin Sullivan, who stepped down in January. Sullivan literally built the Stingray football from the ground up, being the only football coach the school had ever had.
Elliott, a 13-year assistant of Sullivan’s, said it was an honor to take over the program, one that finished 7-3 last season.
Now Elliott is looking to build on the foundation that Sullivan built.
