MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Allen Suber did exactly what Brian Jenkins expected – including win the game.
On Monday, Jenkins praised his assistant head coach for leading Alabama State to a 56-24 home victory Saturday over winless Mississippi Valley State in his absence. Jenkins served a one-game suspension for a recruiting violation committed last season that he reported to Alabama State officials.
“He followed the plan that we put in place as normal and was able to supervise and maintain the level of expectation,” said Jenkins during the SWAC coaches call. “He was really good. It didn’t surprise me because he’s been with me a long time and he knows the system and he knows the adjustments.”
Jenkins believes Suber, who also worked under him at Bethune-Cookman as a receivers coach (2010-2011, 2014) is ready to be a head coach.
“I tell you what, he just exemplified that he’s ready to do his own thing, to have his own program,” Jenkins said. “I was really happy to see our players respond well and therefore we were able to come away with a victory.”
