New coach Massey feels at home at WSSU

WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina -- Robert Massey looks around at the facilities, sees the amount of scholarship space available and the winning tradition at Winston-Salem State, and he can’t help but smile.

“It’s the total package,” said Massey, who was hired recently to be an assistant football coach with the Rams. “I’m just happy to now be a part of Winston-Salem State, and the best part is I don’t have to go against them anymore.”

Massey, 50, was fired at Shaw as the head coach after a 1-9 season in 2015, but it didn’t take long for him to land on his feet.

Kienus Boulware, who completed his second season as head coach of the Rams with a CIAA title, didn’t have to venture too far down his list of contacts to find Massey. The two have worked together before as assistants at N.C. Central and Shaw.
