HAMPTON, Va. -- Connell Maynor, the Winston-Salem State football coach who made the Rams a title contender in NCAA Division II, is the new head coach at Hampton.

Athletic director Novelle Dickenson announced Maynor's hiring on Tuesday.

In four seasons at Winston-Salem State, Maynor coached the Rams to a 45-6 overall record and a 29-2 mark in the CIAA. He directed the Rams to three consecutive CIAA championships, three successive appearances in the Division II playoffs and a spot in the 2012 national championship game.

Maynor was a two-time CIAA Coach of the Year.

Prior to Winston-Salem State, Maynor was offensive coordinator at Fayetteville State, where he guided the Broncos to three CIAA championships.

As a quarterback at North Carolina A&T, Maynor led the Aggies to the 1991 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship.
