Monroe informed his players that he had signed a contract with the United States Army, ending his tenure as their coach for the 2022 season.

“This is something I have always wanted to do and I am not getting any younger.” said Monroe, “This is by far the hardest decision I have made in my whole life but after talking to my wife and doing a lot of praying I think this is my best opportunity.”
