College Football Coach Match (Sun Belt East): Guess the Favorite Music Artist of Clay Helton, Shawn Clark, More article feature image

Matt Roembke/Action Network.

So far this week, we’ve unveiled the AAC and Mountain West conferences, so today we venture to the Fun Belt. Today, it’s the coaches from the Sun Belt East Division. We’ll showcase the Sun Belt West Division on Saturday.

Action Network contacted each of the 133 FBS head coaches and asked the following question: Who is your favorite musical artist or group? Each coach was able to provide only one answer.

Friday's Sun Belt East Hint

We start in the Sun Belt with Appalachian State’s Shawn Clark, Coastal Carolina’s Tim Beck, Georgia State’s Shawn Elliott, Georgia Southern’s Clay Helton, James Madison’s Curt Cignetti, Marshall’s Charles Huff and Old Dominion’s Ricky Rahne.

Today’s hint: Georgia Southern coach Clay Helton’s favorite artist is — no surprise — a Georgia Southern grad. Also, no coach has the same selection.

And this isn’t really a hint, but more a melancholy note: James Madison’s Curt Cignetti chose the same musical artist that the late Mike Leach did a few years ago.

Coach Match Instructions

To guess, click the music artist you think matches each coach from left to right. Some coaches might have the same answer, so you can pick the same artist for multiple coaches. When you have selected an artist for each coach, hit submit. A green box means that artist is correct, a yellow box means that artist was selected by another coach and a gray box means no coach picked this artist.

After completion of Coach Match, click the "share on Twitter" button. One individual daily will be randomly selected for some free Action Network gear if (a) you tweeted your response and (b) you are following @ActionNetworkHQ and @Brett_McMurphy on Twitter.

For each day’s Coach Match, I will provide a hint to hopefully make it a little easier to solve. We will post a new Coach Match daily at 9 a.m. ET, so check back every day.

Guess each coach's favorite artist or band!
