Harper Named SFA Head Football Coach

As defensive coordinator for the SFA Lumberjacks, J.C. Harper called some of the shots. But now this Jack will ultimately call all of the shots.

Harper was named the new head football coach for the SFA Lumberjacks Thursday morning. Harper has spent two seasons with the Jacks as defensive coordinator.

He replaces Robert McFarland who took an assistant coaching job at Iowa State.

"We feel like we needed to finish the job we started," Harper said. "We were all really happy for Coach McFarland and his opportunity, but at the same time we wanted to finish our job so we were excited about that."

Before joining SFA Harper was defensive coordinator at Western Michigan.
