Alcorn State hires Fred McNair as new football coach

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Alcorn State has named Fred McNair as its next football coach, promoting him after four seasons as the assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach.

The 47-year-old McNair is the older brother of the late Steve McNair, who played quarterback in the NFL for 13 seasons. Both brothers played quarterback at Alcorn State.

McNair replaces Jay Hopson, who led the Braves to back-to-back Southwestern Athletic Conference titles over the past two seasons before taking the Southern Mississippi job on Saturday.
