Source tells FootballScoop Howard University (FCS – DC) plans to hire University of Michigan offensive analyst Ron Prince as head coach.

Prince, who served as Kansas State’s head coach between Bill Snyder’s runs, joined Jim Harbaugh’s staff before this season. He had been with the Detroit Lions since 2014 serving as assistant head coach and working with the tight ends and offensive line.

Howard’s head coaching position came open when Mike London accepted the head job at William & Mary.

Under London, the Bison went 4-6 this season. They went 7-4 in London’s first season (2017).

Prince attended App State and previously coached at JMU, Cornell and Virginia prior to becoming Kansas State head coach. After K-State, he had stints with the Colts and Jaguars and then served as offensive coordinator at Rutgers for one season before beginning with the Lions.

Sources tell FootballScoop that Prince is adding Michigan defensive analyst Elijah Sandweiss, a former intern with the Lions during training camp, to his staff.
