Gardner-Webb Welcomes New Football Coach: Tre Lamb

Tre Lamb has been named head football coach at Gardner-Webb University.

"We are thrilled to have Tre Lamb agree to lead our football program at Gardner-Webb University," said GWU President Dr. William Downs. "He quickly rose to the top of a large and distinguished list of interested coaches with his bold vision, his unmatched energy and his confident commitment to winning championships at GWU. Tre comes from a long line of successful football coaches, and leading young men to victory is in his DNA. His plan to immediately and positively impact our student-athletes is impressive, and we couldn't be more excited."

Lamb most recently served as offensive coordinator at Ohio Valley Conference member Tennessee Tech for the past two seasons and has developed a national reputation as a rising star in the coaching industry.

"This is a dream come true for me and I want to thank Dr. Downs, Chuck Burch and the rest of the search committee for their confidence in my ability to lead this program," said Lamb. "Gardner-Webb is a program with great potential. Our approach on the field will be innovative and fun. We will recruit young men who will represent this school and community with class and integrity. Our students, alumni and fans will enjoy watching the Runnin' Bulldogs play football on Saturdays."

Lamb was part of a coaching staff at Tennessee Tech in 2019 that engineered one of the biggest turnarounds in Division I FCS nationally. The Golden Eagles won just two games combined in 2017 and 2018, but bumped that win total to six games this past season.
