Ray Monica is leaving KU to take over in Arkansas for the Wonder Boys.

Ray Monica is leaving Kutztown University to become the next head coach at Arkansas Tech.  The announcement was made Thursday by both schools.

Monica had a hugely successful run as KU head coach, winning a PSAC championship and taking the Golden Bears to the national playoffs twice in 2010 and 2011.  He finishes his tenure with a 45-34 overall record and in 2011 had his team ranked as high as #6 nationally.

Monica led the best years in program history and turned Golden Bear football back into a must-see event at KU for students and alumni. 

He'll go to Arkansas Tech where his team will play in the Great American Conference.
