Assistant Coach/Running Backs
Western Carolina, 2003
Email Coach Seward: email@example.com
Lamont Seward is in his first season with the Army football program.
He spent four seasons at Georgia Southern and was responsible for running backs and wide receivers before making the move to West Point and joining head coach Jeff Monken's staff.
While Georgia Southern was not eligible for the postseason or listed among the NCAA leaders in 2013 due to its move to the Football Bowl Subdivision level and the Sun Belt conference, Seward helped the Eagles to three consecutive NCAA FCS semifinal appearances.
In 2013, Georgia Southern rushed for 3,964 yards. Fullback William Banks was third on the squad with 77 carries for 468 yards and six scores, despite not playing in three games.
Under Seward's guidance, Georgia Southern posted its second highest per-game rushing average (399.4) and ninth NCAA rushing title during his two seasons mentoring the running backs.
He guided wide receivers when he joined the Georgia Southern staff. Seward helped develop Georgia Southern into one of the nation's most efficient passing offenses, ranking second in the nation in 2011 in that category.
Prior to joining Monken at Georgia Southern, Seward spent two seasons at the wide receiver coach at West Georgia, working with the wide receivers and kickoff and punt return units.
Seward coached at Western Carolina, his alma mater, for two seasons helping Eddie Cohen earn the school's single-season record for reception yardage with 1,208. At Western Carolina, Seward was involved in the weekly offensive game plans and the kickoff and punt return teams.
Seward began his coaching career as an assistant coach and offensive coordinator at Warren County High School for two seasons prior to joining the Western Carolina staff.
A member of the Southern Conference All-Decade Team (1997-2006), Seward finished his career third on the Catamounts and SoCon list for receptions with 190. He collected 2,971 receiving yards which stands third all-time at WCU. Seward hauled in a pass in 39 consecutive games, recorded at least one reception in 43 of 45 games and posted 12 games with 100 receiving yards or more.
Seward earned his degree in sport management with a minor in marketing from Western Carolina in 2003.
He and his wife, Bebe, will reside at West Point.
