After two years Jackson State is ready to move on from its athletic director.


According to a report in the Clarion Ledger, Jackson State Athletic Director Wheeler Brown has been relieved of his duties.  The report states that according to its sources the university informed Brown of its decision on Friday afternoon.

Brown was allegedly offered a lesser paying job inside the athletic department but he declined.   Brown has been the AD at Jackson State for two years and had one year remaining on a three-year deal.

Wheeler Brown’s biggest hire in his two years on the job was head coach Tony Hughes, who seems to have an eventful week ahead of him as well.
