APSU Head Football Coach Will Healy is a fan of APSU Athletics, not just football.

Healy made the trek to Des Moines, Iowa, not to see his former school Chattanooga take on Indiana but to cheer on his current team APSU as they take on the University of Kansas at 3 p.m. today.

“It’s important to support the entire athletic department,” Healy said. “I’m a huge fan of the basketball team and coach Loos.”

Healy brought in 26 newcomers on National Signing Day in February to take the No. 1 spot in the Ohio Valley Conference and rank among the top 10 in the Football Championship Subdivision.

“This is what we expect, to win championships at APSU, and our basketball team has led the way,” Healy said

Healy said he is cheering for Chattanooga, but will not be able to attend their game.

Healy flew in for today’s game and will return to Clarksville, Tennessee tonight to lead workouts with the football team tomorrow morning at 5 a.m.

“When we win, I’ll fly back out here tomorrow afternoon,” Healy said.

Healy said this exposure helps APSU in every aspect. Instead of having to see where APSU is on a map, people will know because the basketball team made it to the NCAA Tournament.

“We’re using this in our recruiting now,” Healy said. “You can’t pay for this kind of exposure and publicity.”
