Grambling State athletic director Lin Dawson says head football coach Rod Broadway has resigned to take the head coaching job at North Carolina A&T.
Broadway arrived at Grambling in 2007 and has gone 35-12 in his four seasons, which included a Southwestern Athletic Conference championship in 2008.
Dawson says he understands Broadway's decision to return to his home state of North Carolina and says Grambling will miss him.
Dawson says Broadway is a ''true leader and developer of young men'' who has left the Tigers' football program in excellent shape. The university says a small search committee is being formed immediately to look for a new coach and that the position will be filled as soon as possible.
