Contract details aren’t known at this time.

This is a bold decision by Grambling State, and I’m here for it. Deion Sanders is at Jackson State, Eddie George is at Tennessee State and GSU will reportedly now hire Hue Jackson.

There are are a ton of NFL ties starting to form at the FCS level, and that’s good for everyone involved.

FCS football is very good football. It’s not as good as watching the SEC or Big Ten, but it is still high-level football.

FCS guys end up in the NFL, and great FCS teams are a ton of fun to watch. NFL guys getting involved only raises the awareness of the FCS for everyone involved.

We’ll see how Hue Jackson does with the Tigers, but this is a huge hire for a program that can use all the attention it can get.
