The defensive coaching staff for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team was named this week's Game Changing Coaches by FootballScoop.com. The Mocs (4-1, 2-1 SoCon) posted a 14-7 win at Samford last weekend, improving on their best start since the 1997 season.
UTC's defense recorded a pair of take-aways inside their own five-yard line to preserve the win. Chattanooga also slowed Samford's preseason All-SoCon running back Chris Evans to 64 yards on the ground, his lowest output of the season.
