He played at Campbellsville University and began his coaching career at Clark in the 2010-11 season. He also coached at Magoffin High School from 2016-18.

“I’m very excited about the future of Cardinal Football,” he said. “I’m a strong believer in discipline and academics.

“I’m very grateful for this opportunity to help this young student-athletes to grow on and off the field.”

Lanning said he is “blessed beyond what I deserve” and is looking forward to leading the program.

“A lot have made sports and football an awesome thing in this town and I hope to continue that,” he said. “I’m certainly glad to be home. I’m very humbled and grateful.”
