Jackson State will hire Tony Hughes as its next football coach, sources have confirmed to The Clarion-Ledger.
Hughes, who was the safeties coach and recruiting coordinator at Mississippi State, has been an assistant, but never a head coach, during his career.
“The only thing I’ll say is, in my career 31 years of coaching, I would love to be a head coach,” Hughes said after the Bulldogs’ practice on Saturday. “As a career assistant in the SEC, a high school coach, junior college, I would love to be a head coach in my career. There are few opportunities that arise in a career that you may get an opportunity or not.”
