Sean Lewis hired as San Diego State head coach

San Diego State has announced the hiring of Sean Lewis as the Aztecs’ next head football coach. Lewis spent the 2023 season as the OC at Colorado and before that was the head coach at Kent State for five seasons, going to two bowl games. He resigned from that position last year to join Deion Sanders in Boulder.

“My family and I can’t express how excited we are to be joining this incredible community,” Lewis said. “We are looking forward to partnering with all of you in serving and leading our amazing football program. This time is now to support and make Snapdragon Stadium the place to be for Fast, Physical, Fun Aztec Football.”

Lewis will replace Brady Hoke, who earlier this month announced he was retiring following the season. The Aztecs finished the season 4-8.

“I am thrilled to welcome Sean Lewis and his family to San Diego State University,” AD John David Wicker said. “He is a coach with immense talent and I’m looking forward to the excitement that his teams are going to generate at Snapdragon Stadium. His approach emphasizing academic and life skills opportunities are equally important and will complement the student-athlete experience.”
