Lenoir-Rhyne head football coach Mike Houston has resigned from his position.
Houston's resignation comes on the heels of a Monday meeting with The Citadel for the school's opening for a head football coach.
Houston led Lenoir-Rhyne to a 13-2 record this past season, guiding the Bears to a National Championship game appearance â€” their first since 1962 and first-ever in NCAA Div. II.
