Texas Southern hires Clarence McKinney as football coach

HOUSTON (AP) — Texas Southern has hired Arizona assistant Clarence McKinney as its head coach.

A school statement Monday announced the selection of McKinney, who spent this season as associate head coach and running backs coach at Arizona.

McKinney replaces Michael Haywood, who last week resigned after a 2-9 season. He was 8-25 in three seasons at the Houston school.

McKinney was on Kevin Sumlin’s staff at Houston in 2008, serving four seasons as running backs coach before joining Sumlin at Texas A&M for six seasons. McKinney then joined Sumlin at Arizona.
