The new face of Jackson State football is a familiar one. Former JSU star and NFL receiver Harold Jackson was officially named the new head coach at his alma mater on Tuesday. Jackson replaces Rick Comegy, who was fired in December after back-to-back overtime losses in the SWAC Championship Game.

// Jackson played at JSU in the late sixties before going on to a long NFL career with Rams, Eagles and Patriots. The five-time Pro Bowler has coached since he retired in the mid-eighties, including a brief head coaching stint at Benedict College back in the 90s.
