AKRON, Ohio (AP) Akron has hired Chattanooga coach Tom Arth to replace fired coach Terry Bowden.
The school announced the hiring Friday, nearly two weeks after firing Bowden following a 4-8 season.
Arth coached Chattanooga the past two seasons and had an 11-13 record, including 6-5 this season. He previously coached four seasons at John Carroll, his alma mater, and went 40-8 with three postseason appearances.
Arth was a backup to Peyton Manning from 2003-05 with the Indianapolis Colts, but never appeared in a regular-season game.
Bowden was fired this month after Akron completed a disappointing 4-8 season with a 28-3 loss at South Carolina.
Akron says it will hold a press conference Monday at InfoCision Stadium-Summa Field.
