Shiel Wood Added to Army Football Defensive Staff
Army head coach Jeff Monken has announced the addition of Shiel Wood to the coaching staff. Wood will work with Nate Woody on the defensive side of the ball.
Wood, a former assistant coach at Georgia Tech and defensive coordinator at Wofford, most recently was Georgia State's inside linebackers coach and special teams coordinator during the 2019 season.
"I am excited to welcome Shiel Wood to Army Football," said Monken. "His background working with Nate Woody, along with his experience as a defensive coordinator, makes him a great asset to our program. His roots in the South will enhance our already strong recruiting in those states. I am looking forward to our players learning and working with Coach Wood."
"Coach Wood has enjoyed success as a former defensive coordinator evidenced by his top ranked rush defense and nationally ranked total defense at Wofford," said Woody. "He brings experience defending the option at both the second and third levels of the defense and has valuable experience as a receiver's coach as well. Coach Wood brings great character, work ethic and passion every day he comes to work and we are truly thankful to have him join our staff here at Army."
"I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to coach football at the United States Military Academy," said Wood. "The opportunity to work for Coach Monken and under Coach Woody is a blessing. I look forward to working with and getting to know the fine young men on our team." Read more.
