Alcorn head football coach search and selection

Alcorn head football coach search and selection

Alcorn State, Miss. (May 26, 2012) – Alcorn President M. Christopher Brown II will detail the head football coach search process and announce the selection on Monday, May 28 at 2:00 p.m. on the Lorman campus.

Members of the search committee, campus alumni, community leaders, and university donors have been invited to join in Alcorn’s highly anticipated announcement after weeks of false speculations and inaccurate rumors.

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.”

What: A press conference to announce and introduce Alcorn State University’s new head football coach.

When: Monday, May 28, 2012 at 2:00 p. m.

Where: Alcorn State University — Lorman Campus, for location details, please call Clara Ross Stamps at 601.877.6130 or 601.443.3658.
