OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) - Kentucky Wesleyan head football coach Brent Holsclaw has been named the NCAA Division II Coach of the Week as selected by USA College Football Network.
Holsclaw led the Panthers to a sixth win for their first winning season since 1999 by surpassing visiting Virginia Lynchburg 53-13 on Saturday. It marked the third time in KWC history for six.
"This is a tremendous honor," Holsclaw stated. "However, the credit of this season's success goes to the student-athletes and the coaching staff for their dedication and hard work."
KWC will have the opportunity to tie the record for most wins with seven (7-4, 1999) when the Panthers host Ohio Mid-Western on Nov. 22, at 6 p.m.
Holsclaw closes in on his 12th season at his alma mater, the longest tenured KWC football coach.
