ASU AD Hines expresses support for Jenkins

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama State athletic director Melvin Hines remains in full support of his head football coach – Brian Jenkins.

In a letter posted last week on ASU’s athletic website, Hines spoke highly of Jenkins, saying he and the “university leadership stand firmly behind Coach Jenkins and all of his staff with enthusiastic solidarity and support as they gear up for the 2017 season.”

The Hornets are 10-12 in their two seasons under Jenkins since he replaced Reggie Barlow. Jenkins suffered his first losing season ever as ASU went 4-7 last season, but Hines is optimistic about the football program’s future under the coach he lured from Bethune-Cookman to lead the Hornets.

ASU will renew its rivalry with Tuskegee to open the 2017 season Sept. 2 at ASU Stadium.
