Alabama State Hornets (5-6)


Alabama State names Hill-Eley as coach

(STATS) - After revitalizing what was a winless program in early October, Alabama State has removed the interim tag from Donald Hill-Eley's title and named him the 29th coach in school history.

Taking over as the Hornets' interim coach on Oct. 6 after Brian Jenkins was relieved of his duties following an 0-5 start, Hill-Eley guided Alabama State to five wins in his six games at the helm.

"Coach Hill-Eley is a veteran who has already proven his ability to provide the kind of leadership that is needed for the university's football program," Alabama State University President Dr. Quinton T. Ross, Jr. said. "I would like to thank interim athletics director Jennifer Williams and the search committee for their due diligence and thoughtful deliberation in sending the recommendation of Donald Hill-Eley as ASU's next head football coach. In making this announcement, the university's leadership is affirming our commitment to the continued success of ASU's athletics program."
