Alcorn State to Introduce New Head Football Coach on Monday
[mpoverlay]Alcorn State University today announced that a press conference will be held on Monday, May 28 to introduce the university’s new head football coach. Alcorn President M. Christopher Brown II will also explain in detail the search process, which officials say was delayed slightly by planning and execution of commencement exercises earlier this month. From the release:
The date for the announcement was confirmed and held confidential almost three weeks ago when campus management realized they would be unable to complete critical data analysis in advance of graduation activities.
“We could not rush this process,” says President Brown. “Alcorn’s leadership along with the search committee took the responsibility of selecting the next head football coach very seriously. A thorough process was necessary to find the best hire for Alcorn at this point in our history. Additionally, the university needed to reassess football operations over the past decade and dedicate the resources necessary for Division I program logistics and student-athlete recruitment.”
The press conference will be held at 2:00 p.m. on the Alcorn campus.[/mpoverlay]
