There were a host of coaching changes before the 2014 season that created tremendous competitive balance within the conference.

In the offseason, only two head coaches — Reggie Barlow at Alabama State and Heishma Northern at Prairie View — were replaced.

There figures to be stability this season, although a few coaches will be under fire as the year progresses.

The SWAC head football coaches are ranked (in no particular order) based on job security heading into the 2015 season:

Harold Jackson – Jackson State


Rick Comegy — Mississippi Valley State

Brian Jenkins – Alabama State

Jay Hopson — Alcorn State

Willie Simmons – Prairie View


Monte Coleman – Arkansas Pine-Bluff

James Spady – Alabama A&M

Darrell Asberry – Texas Southern

Dawson Odums – Southern

Broderick Fobbs – Grambling State
