Edenfield has served as offensive coordinator at Troy since 2008. Under Edenfield, the Trojans offense put up impressive numbers including an average of 453 yards per game in 2010. Troy also played in three bowls since his arrival. The Trojans lost to Southern Miss in the New Orleans Bowl in 2008, lost to Central Michigan in the GMAC Bowl in the 2009 season and defeated Ohio in the 2010 New Orleans Bowl.

Edenfield has ties to North Alabama having served as offensive coordinator for the Lions from 2002-06. In that time, UNA broke numerous school offensive records and ranked at the top of Division II offensive statistical categories annually. North Alabama compiled a 54-19 in Edenfield’s time with the Lions.

While, according to the report, no decision has been mad, Edenfield is one of two candidates at the top of UNA’s list.

North Alabama has become a perennial power in Division II in the past decade.

In 2009, Bowden replaced current Louisiana-Lafayette head coach Mark Hudspeth at UNA.

Bowden was 29-10 in three seasons with the Lions.
