Dino Babers' first season as the head coach at Eastern Illinois (and his first season ever leading a program) resulted in a 7-5 overall record, including a 6-1 finish to win the Ohio Valley Conference, which also earned them an appearance in the FCS playoffs (where they lost in the first round).

Babers began his college coaching career at Hawaii and has coached every offensive position but offensive line and tight ends, at places like Hawaii, Arizona State, Arizona, Purdue, Texas A&M, Pitt, UCLA, and Baylor.

Needless to say, he's got plenty of experience, under quality head coaches to draw from in his first head coaching job, and it's showing.

In just their second season, he and his entire staff have done a tremendous job. The Panthers are currently sitting at 9-1 overall, and a perfect 6-0 in conference play, with games against Jacksonville State at home, and a road trip to Tennessee-Martin to wrap up the regular season before starting the playoffs.

Here's a great all access look at how every single one of his assistants gets after it during a practice.
