STERLING — Sterling College has promoted from within to replace head football coach Chuck Lambert, who resigned recently after leading the Warriors to the NAIA playoffs for the second year in a row.
Chase Hansen, the Warriors’ offensive coordinator, has been charged with keeping the Sterling fortunes at a high level. Sterling was 17-6 in the two years under Lambert, who had succeeded his brother Andy as head coach in 2016.
Hansen has been on the Warriors’ staff for six years. He twice has been named as the KCAC’s Assistant Coach of the Year, nabbing the honor in 2013 and 2016.
Hansen played collegiately at Bethel College, where he also served as the Threshers’ offensive coordinator for two years before moving on to Sterling.
