Jay Hopson takes over Southern Miss' football program

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) Jay Hopson was an assistant coach for Southern Mississippi when the program was the envy of most mid-major schools in the country.

Now he's returning to try and duplicate that success as the program's leader.

Hopson was introduced as Southern Mississippi's new football coach on campus Monday, saying the position is an "opportunity of a lifetime." He was hired from Alcorn State, where he led the Braves to back-to-back Southwestern Athletic Conference championships.
