He had been a successful football coach at every level before coming to Navy, so it's no surprise that the administrators at the academy are completely behind coach George Chaump, despite the team's 0-9 start.
As he has said the entire season, Navy athletic director Jack Lengyel said yesterday that the football team is in good hands.
"I'm pleased with George Chaump as a football coach, as I've said all along," Lengyel said. "He has done a fine job under extenuating football circumstances. When he has an opportunity under a full four-year football structure, he will bring the Navy team back to its successful mode of the past."
