Troy University football coach Chip Lindsey will be at Enterprise Country Club next Tuesday night for Trojan Tour 2019.

Lindsey will be one of three Troy coaches appearing at the free event, which will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. He will be joined by men’s basketball coach Scott Cross and women’s basketball coach Chanda Rigby.

“We take our Coach’s Caravan around to the different locations where we have a lot of alums,” said Faith Ward, Troy University Alumni director. “This is a family-friendly event, and anyone is welcome to come out -- alumni, friends, donors, coaches.”

Ward said the event will give everyone time “to mix and mingle”. Each coach will speak and be interviewed, as well as field questions from the crowd.

Coaches will be available for photos and autographs. Trojan memorabilia is on site for autographs or merchandise can be brought.

Lindsey is entering his first season at the helm the Trojan football program. He is Troy’s 22nd head football coach, and has previously served as offensive coordinator at Southern Miss, Arizona State, Auburn and Kansas.

He takes over the program from Neal Brown, who left to become head coach at West Virginia at the conclusion of last season.

Cross was named head coach of the men’s basketball program in March 2019. He posted 225 wins at UT Arlington and has averaged 19 wins per season over his career.

Cross’s teams have been to the postseason five times, and he is a four-time Coach of the Year Winner for his time at UT Arlington.

Rigby will enter her eighth season as Troy University’s head women’s basketball coach. She is the fastest to 100 wins in Troy’s history, and the 2018-19 squad posted the most ever wins in a single season with 22.

Last year, Troy University hosted its first ever postseason women’s basketball game at Trojan arena, and the team had a major win over Ole Miss and set an NCAA record for most points scored in the first half of a basketball game with 81 in 2017.
