GSU athletic director Tom Kleinlein has confirmed he talked with Army representatives and has given them permission to talk with Monken. He's led the Eagles for four seasons, compiling 38 wins.
Monken spent time as an assistant to Paul Johnson at Georgia Southern, Navy and Georgia Tech. Both coaches run the triple-option, similar to the offense at Army.
The Black Knights fired head coach Rich Ellerson after just 20 wins in five seasons… including 0-5 against Navy.
