Kent State set to introduce new football coach
Kent State has called a news conference for Monday to introduce
its new football coach.
The school has been searching for its 20th coach since Doug
Martin resigned with a few weeks left in the season.
Athletic director Joel Nielsen interviewed a dozen candidates,
including four on KSU’s campus: Alabama wide receivers coach Curt
Cignetti, Texas wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy, Ohio State
assistant head coach/wide receivers coach Darrell Hazell and Kent
State defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis.
Kent State went 5-7 in Martin’s final season and 29-53 in his
seven seasons overall.
