Troy offensive coordinator Kenny Edenfield is replacing head coach Larry Blakeney at Sun Belt Conference Media Day in New Orleans.
Troy Athletic Director John Hartwell made the announcement on Sunday.
Blakeney underwent minor back and foot surgery on Thursday. Blakeney says doctors have advised him that extended travel could affect his recovery.
Offensive lineman Terrence Jones and linebacker Wayland Coleman-Dancer will join coach Edenfield this week.
