What's next for Alcorn State?

LORMAN, Mississippi -- Jay Hopson inherited Alcorn State's football program while it was, in his own words, at "rock bottom."

After four seasons, he left the Braves at the top of the SWAC with back-to-back conference championships.

Following Hopson's hiring as Southern Miss' coach, Alcorn State is tasked with finding the coach who can keep pushing the program's momentum forward.

Shortly after the news was released about Hopson's departure on Saturday night, Derek Horne, Braves athletic director, appointed assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach Fred McNair as Alcorn State's interim coach.

In a university press release, Horne stated a national search for Hopson's permanent replacement would start immediately.
