Commerce officials reviewed the incident and handed down the suspension, and Lone Star Conference commissioner Stan Wagnon said Monday the two-game punishment satisfied the conference.

"We have reviewed the tape and agree with the way Texas A&M-Commerce officials handled the punishment," Wagnon said.

Football News
We have learned that freshman offensive lineman Connor Wise will be transferring from Texas A&M Commerce to Arizona Western College (Yuma, AZ) to continue his football career.

Knoll Become FB Assistant Head Coach - Mike Knoll, a previous head coach and assistant coach at the NCAA Division I level, has joined the Northeastern State University football staff, according to RiverHawks' head coach Kenny Evans.

Knoll, the former head coach at New Mexico State University and assistant coach on staffs at the University of Tulsa, Iowa State, and the University of Miami, will serve as the RiverHawks assistant head coach, defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator.

"Mike brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our program with a great background," said Evans. "He has been around great programs and coaches all across the country. To lure him to Northeastern State at this point in our program is a very big plus for us.

"We are close to turning the corner and this could be what we need for that to happen as we seek to return to the great football days of the past at Northeastern State."

Knoll has also coached on the Division II level and NAIA level, and comes to Northeastern State after serving as the head football coach at Upper Iowa University (NCAA Division II) for four seasons.

Knoll said he was excited to join the RiverHawks' staff and sees great things ahead for the program.

"A lot of what brought me here to Northeastern State was my previous coaching experience in Northeastern Oklahoma, the area itself and Green Country," said Knoll. "The nine years I spent at the University of Tulsa, I always had a great amount of respect for Northeastern State.

"I knew the program was run well, there were good coaches and they were successful during those times. I see this as an opportunity to help the football program get better, through recruiting as much as anything else. When I was at TU under (John) Cooper he said you look for players that are better than you coach. So, it's all about recruiting and having the opportunity to work with this staff and coach Evans. The timing and opportunity just worked out."
