PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It has not been an easy journey for Division II Lincoln University out in Chester County since they restarted their football program. In five seasons, the Lions have picked up just eight wins in 50 games. As a result, O.J. Abanishe will not be back as head coach in 2013, he has been replaced with Ramon Flanigan who is settling in after taking over the reigns in late April.
“People talk about dream jobs all the time, and they are usually specific to a certain school or a certain part of the country,” Flanigan tells KYW Newsradio. “For me, this is my dream job, because all of the things I think you need to be successful are here at Lincoln. That’s outstanding administration, a great location, unbelievable academic reputation of your school and then a good following. Our following right now isn’t a football following, because we’re still a work in progress, learning our football culture, developing our football culture. But the people here are unbelievable.”
