Alcorn kicks off spring looking for another SWAC title

LORMAN, Mississippi -- Who knew the Tampa Bay Buccaneers firing of Lovie Smith would end up having so much impact on Alcorn State?

Smith's firing opened the door for Dirk Koetter to take over as head coach. Koetter plucked Southern Miss coach Todd Monken to be his offensive coordinator.

The Golden Eagles hired Jay Hopson, who led the Braves to back-to-back SWAC championships, to be their coach.

The Clarion-Ledger will take a look at what Alcorn State will look like post-Hopson and other storylines as the Braves kick off spring practice on Tuesday

Hopson gone, McNair in

Shortly after Hopson's departure, Alcorn State hired Fred McNair to be its coach. McNair had been a finalist for the job before and served as the assistant head coach under Hopson, so the move made sense on paper.
