JSU Fans Petitioning To Fire Coach, AD

By Steven J. Gaither

Hours after losing its homecoming game to its old coach, at least one Jackson State supporter wants the new one gone too. A petition to fire head coach Harold Jackson and athletic director Vivian Fuller has surfaced on Change.org.

“Vivian Fuller fired Head Coach Rick Comegy. A coach that lead Jackson State to 4 SWAC Championship appearances. Fuller then hired a new head coach (Harold Jackson) who has turned the schools football team into a laughingstock. Most noticeably a loss to a team that has not beat Jackson State University in 19 years (Mississippi Valley State). Under their leadership JSU football program has become a disgrace an abomination and downright pathetic.”

The petition was posted by Tim Jones and just hit the 50 signature mark. The post was apparently written after Saturday’s 27-23 homecoming loss to Mississippi Valley State. JSU, the defending SWAC East champ, is now 3-4 (1-3 in the SWAC).
