Southeast Missouri St. names Matukewicz coach

Cape Girardeau, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Southeast Missouri State introduced former University of Toledo defensive coordinator Tom Matukewicz as its new head football coach on Wednesday.

Matukewicz succeeds Tony Samuel, who was fired last month by the Ohio Valley Conference school after his third straight three-win season and eighth overall.

Matukewicz had been at Toledo the last two seasons, also serving as the linebackers coach.

He was an assistant at Northern Illinois from 2008-11 and was selected as the 2007 FCS Assistant Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association during a run as linebackers coach at Southern Illinois from 2001-07.

Matukewicz also has been an assistant coach at Emporia State, Pittsburg State, Fort Hayes State and Coffeyville Community College.
