Virginia State Names Latrell Scott New Head Football Coach
Virginia State University yesterday named Latrell Scott as its new head football coach. Scott is the former head coach of the University of Richmond, and comes to VSU from James Madison University, where he coached tight ends.
VSU President Keith T. Miller said he was impressed with Scott’s goals for the team, both athletically and academically. “We’re delighted to have Coach Scott as a Trojan,” he said. “We’re ready to embrace what he wants to do with our football program.”
Scott was an all-America tight end at Hampton University, and won two MEAC football championships as a player. According to the university’s release, Scott contributed as a position coach to the 2007 Richmond team which won a school-record 11 wins and made the school’s first ever appearance in the National Semifinals.
