ELON, N.C. (AP) — Elon has hired Ball State assistant Rich Skrosky as its football coach.

Athletic director Dave Blank announced the hiring Thursday.

Skrosky was on Pete Lembo's staff at Elon from 2006-10 before following him to Ball State, where he spent the past three seasons as the Cardinals' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Ball State (10-2) averaged 486 yards and 40 points this season, beat Virginia by three touchdowns and earned a berth in the GoDaddy Bowl.

Skrosky says he is "returning to a place that is very special" to him.

He replaces Jason Swepson, who was fired Nov. 25 after going 10-24 in three seasons.

The Phoenix will begin play in the CAA in 2014 after competing in the Southern Conference since 2003.
