Brian Jenkins has been named head coach at Alabama State, according to reports.

Jenkins, who was a decorated head coach at Bethune-Cookman, will replace Reggie Barlow, who was fired at the end of the 2014 season.

Jenkins agreeing to accept the Alsbama State job comes just days after he denied applying for the position.

“I have not applied for nothing,” Jenkins told the News Journal. “I work for B-CU and B-CU only. Can’t control others’ interest. Big recruiting weekend this week. Really don’t need this.

Jenkins has a 46-14 record in five seasons at Bethune-Cookman. The Wildcats have a 34-6 conference record under Jenkins with three FCS playoff appearances.
