DeLong most recently was an assistant coach at Georgia Tech, where he spent just the 2017 season following a head coaching stint at Cameron University.
The head coach at Division II Cameron for three seasons, DeLong owns a 105-60 career record. The position at his alma mater was his first in the collegiate ranks, though not his first as a head coach. Prior to that, he had been a head coach at the high school level for six years.
DeLong takes over at APU after Shane Showalter’s dismissal. The Governors posted a 26-69 record over the last two seasons, including a 17-31 mark in 2017, when they won just five (25%) of their conference match-ups.
