Reggie Barlow accepts Virginia State football job

Its official: Reggie Barlow is a college head coach again. As reported by HBCU Gameday last week, the former Alabama State coach and NFL receiver was offered the job a few weeks ago, and has accepted the position.

Barlow will leave his post as head coach of Lanier (AL) High School to take over at VSU, as he becomes the third coach in the last three seasons for the 2014 CIAA champs.

“This was a tough one,” Barlow told AlabamaNews.net.


Barlow coached his alma mater to a 49-42 record in eight seasons before being asked to resign following the 2014 season, just months after agreeing to a new deal.

“It’s new wine, new skin and I’m just happy to be there.
