Connell Maynor introduced as new Alabama A&M coach

He hits the ground with a new hire that will have people talking.

Connell Maynor has been a head coach in the CIAA and the MEAC and on Monday morning he officially joined the SWAC brotherhood.  Maynor was introduced to the media and the world as the newest head coach at Alabama A&M University.

Interesting staff additions

Maynor has a penchant for stirring the spot wherever he ends up coaching.  He didn’t disappoint on Monday when he named former Alabama State head coach Brian Jenkins as his wide receivers coach. Folks in Alabama should be talking about that one for a while.

Mo Carter from WZDX-TV is reporting that Maynor will also retain at least two staff members from the previous coaching staff.

 

Maynor coached the previous four seasons at Hampton University before resigning after the 2017 season. He went 20-25 in his first stint as an FCS head coach.

The North Carolina A&T graduate is best known for his first head coaching job at Winston-Salem State. He led WSSU to a 45-6 record in four seasons, winning at least one playoff game in each of his last three seasons and leading the program to the Division II national title game in 2012.

He takes over an Alabama A&M program that went 4-7 in 2017 under former coach James Spady.
