The FCS Coach of the Week goes to... Alcorn State's Jay Hopson

Alcorn State won its home finale last night, 50-35 over Prairie View, to move to 8-3 (6-2 SWAC) on the year. The first non-black head coach in SWAC history, Hopson has led the Braves to as many wins in his first two seasons (12) as the team won in the previous four - with one game to spare. He's clinched Alcorn State's first winning season since 2006. Outstanding work by Hopson and his staff to build credibility, inside and outside the program, in such a short time soon.
