UW-Oshkosh defensive coordinator Pat Cerroni was named as the school's interim head football coach for the 2007 season.
Cerroni's appointment comes two days after Phil Meyer resigned as UW-Oshkosh's head football coach to become the offensive line coach at the University of Minnesota. Meyer had been the head football coach at UW-Oshkosh since the 2007 football season.
A national search to fill UW-Oshkosh's permanent head coaching position will be launched this fall and concluded by the end of the 2007 football season.
The 41 year old Cerroni has been UW-Oshkosh's defensive coordinator since the 2000 season.
