Defensive Coordinator, Stephen Tate will assume head coaching responsibilities as interim head coach. Saint Augustine's University will begin an immediate national search for a replacement. 

Dr. Lin Dawson will assume Athletic Director duties effective immediately until the end of the academic year. A national search for a full-time athletic director will take place following the conclusion of the school year.

Statement from SAU President Dr. Christine McPhail:

"I would like to commend Coach Bowser for his leadership in the athletic department and love for our student-athletes. I would like to ask the entire university community to join me in wishing Coach Bowser success in his future endeavors."

Statement from Dr. Lin Dawson:

"David Bowser is the type of person you want on your side when defending from a fox hole, climbing a steep mountain, patrolling the sidelines, or when it is 4th-and-1 with time running out. He has the passion and drive to get things done.   

Starting near ground zero, he has built a solid football talent base that should pay dividends for the next football leader. 

Most notably, I am appreciative of his work to revive the Hall of Fame Ceremony, initiate an Athletics fundraising program, gain the Retool Your School Home Depot Award, and to energize the Lawrence Coleman Golf Tournament." 

The football team is returning many prominent student-athletes and is excited for the implementation of the JV Football Program. The JV Football Program intends to use faculty mentors, concentrate on skill development and football IQ, and introduce a life skills program.
