Alcorn's Horne leading candidate in ULM AD search

MONROE, Louisiana -- Alcorn State athletic director Derek Horne is the leading candidate for the same position at ULM.

ULM has scheduled a Wednesday interview with Horne, who arrived in Monroe on Tuesday.

ULM President Nick Bruno, special assistant to the president Ron Hogan and former ULM and Southern Miss athletic director Richard Giannini are running the search along with an appointed search committee.

Alcorn has won two SWAC football championships, three football division titles and a tennis championship. The school also had 10 student-athletes earn first-team All-SWAC recognition since Horne was hired in 2014.

Men’s basketball coach Montez Robinson, a Horne hire, has guided the Braves from a six-win team to 33 wins in two seasons.

Alcorn signed Horne to a three-year extension in 2016.
