Rick Comegy is not expected to be named head coach at Mississippi Valley State after the school reportedly said it is unable to secure the necessary dollars to make the hire, media reports indicate.
According to FootballScoop.com, “MVSU was not able to come up with the funds to hire Comegy.”

Comegy was fired by Jackson State on Dec. 18 just two weeks after leading the Tigers to the SWAC Championship game.
MVSU will instead target Morehouse head coach Rich Freeman, the website said.
