USM coach

LEAVENWORTH — Lance Hinson has been named the head football coach at the University of Saint Mary for a second tenure.

Hinson led the Spires from 2005 to the spring of 2014. He was 38-54 as the USM coach. He was the head coach at McMurry University in Texas from 2014 to 2018, leading the school in a transition from NCAA Division II to NCAA Division III (non-scholarship). He was 14-35 at McMurry.

He returned to Saint Mary in 2019 as associate athletic director, a position he will retain.

Hinson is a two-time KCAC coach of the year (2005 and 2011).

"I'm thrilled to return as head coach of the Spires," Hinson said. "I'm grateful for the opportunity to coach the fine young men at Saint Mary and to continue serving this institution. It is the right time for me to step back into a head coaching role, and I look forward to helping our athletes achieve excellence both on and off the field."

He was an assistant at USM from 2002 to 2004. He served as an assistant at Baker University from 1997 to 2001.

He was an undergraduate assistant and graduate assistant at NCAA Division I FCS North Texas, where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He holds a master’s degree from Baker.

Hinson succeeds Jay Osborne, who was 23-42 in six seasons. The Spires finished 0-11 last season, 0-10 in KCAC play.
