HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - Mike Houston, who led The Citadel to just the fourth winning season in its history, is the new head coach at James Madison University.

JMU Athletics Director Jeff Bourne announced Houston’s hiring Monday evening.

Houston posted a 14-11 record in two seasons as head coach at The Citadel. His 2015 team was 9-4, including a 23-22 upset of South Carolina in the season finale. The Bulldogs tied for the Southern Conference championship and advanced to the second round of the FCS playoffs.

Before joining The Citadel, Houston was 29-8 in three seasons as head coach at Division II Lenoir-Rhyne.

At James Madison, he succeeds Everett Withers, who resigned to accept the head coaching job at Texas State.
