(STATS) - New coaches at James Madison and Maine? Yeah, no pressure.
It's hard enough to win in CAA Football, where a record six teams earned FCS playoff bids last season, but defending champion Maine and 2019 preseason favorite James Madison are under new leadership which face high expectations. James Madison, picked No. 2 in the STATS FCS Preseason Top 25, hired former Elon coach Curt Cignetti, and Maine, No. 7 in the preseason, elevated offensive coordinator Nick Charlton.
One-third of the 12-team conference has new coaches with Tony Trisciani taking over at Elon and Mike London in at William & Mary.
