LORMAN, Miss. (AP) -- Alcorn State promoted defensive coordinator Earnest Collins Jr. to interim head football coach Friday.
Collins replaces Ernest Jones, who was fired this week after just one season.
In a news release, Alcorn State president George Ross described Collins as "an exceptional leader."
Collins was one of seven assistants fired over the Thanksgiving break, only to be brought back the following week on a month-to-month basis. He served as secondary coach at Central Florida for one season.
