Alcorn State hires Fred McNair

JACKSON, Mississippi -- Alcorn State has turned to a familiar face with a very familiar name to lead its football program.

The Braves promoted Fred McNair, the team’s interim head coach, to head coach and introduced him at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame on Tuesday.

McNair, who was named the interim head coach on Jan. 31, is a former Brave quarterback and the older brother to former Tennessee Titan and Baltimore Raven quarterback Steve McNair.

He joined Alcorn in 2012 and has been the program’s assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach. McNair helped coach former SWAC Co-Offensive Player of the Year John Gibbs Jr. and current quarterback Lenorris Footman transition into the starting role after Gibbs went out with an ankle injury during the 2015 season.
