There are 4 HBCU Programs looking for Coaches to re-fill the vacancies to hire Head Coaches and we wanted to break down a list of some of the top candidates.
There has been a whirlwind of events in the HBCU football community with the departure of Coach Prime heading to Colorado. Jackson State and Ashley Robinson are on the hunt to fill Coach Prime position as head coach. Bethune is another program looking to make a big change, after a year of devastation with hurricanes hitting the campus twice last year. University of Arkansas Pine Bluff and Delaware State are also our looking to upgrade their coaching vacancies. Hopefully, they can get coaches, who can build it up and turn it around. I believe these 6 coaches are definitely solid options to replace Coach Prime and others.
- Ed Reed- The University of Miami and Senior football advisor. Coached the Buffalo Bills Dbs in 2016, and was offered the Grambling State job before Hue Jackson in 2021.
- Brennan Marion- has an extended coaching background from him being a Head coach at St. Patrick St. Vincent in 2013 to the Head coach at Waynesboro in 2014. Howard 2017-2018, Hawaii-2020, Pittsburgh 2021, and Passing game coordinator for The University of Texas 2022. He is ready to be a Head Coach.
- Jarod Mayo– Inside Linebackers coach for and his former team, New England Patriots.
- Marcus Brady- offensive coordinator of the Indianapolis Colts. Jeff Saturday is the new head coach and probably OC.
- Ray Lewis– The name says enough. I believe he is forgivin to come to the HBCU community.
- Dennis Thurman– who can keep the defense intact and keep Brett Bartolone, then JSU can add more coaching experience and depth or keep Thurman as the defensive coordinator and hire a premier Head Coach.
