Eliah Drinkwitz slips up during introductory Missouri press conference: Our goal is to win the Sun Belt
Eliah Drinkwitz is still getting accustomed to being a coach in the Southeastern Conference.
During his first press conference in Columbia, Drinkwitz noted the goal of his program was to win the Sun Belt before quickly correcting himself.
Considering the former Appalachian State coach is fresh off winning the Sun Belt Championship after leading his team to a 12-1 record this is a mistake that’s somewhat to be expected but it’s still funny.
If you listen closely, you’ll hear Missouri AD Jim Sterk shout back at Drinkwitz, “You just did that!” in the clip below.
Interestingly enough, this is the exact line Drinkwitz used this time last year when he was named head coach at Appalachian State.
“Our stated goal is to win the Sun Belt Conference championship and a bowl game with class, integrity and academic excellence,” Drinkwitz said back on Dec. 17, 2018.
