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.”
