Mississippi Valley State hires Comegy as head coach

ITTA BENA, Miss. -- Mississippi Valley State has hired Rick Comegy to be its next football coach.

The school announced the hiring of the 60-year-old Comegy on Tuesday. He was fired by Jackson State in December despite a 55-35 record in eight seasons, including an 8-4 mark last season.

He wasn't unemployed for long, landing at a rival school about 100 miles away.

Comegy, who has a career record of 164-86 in 22 seasons at Tuskegee, Cheyney, Central State and Jackson State, will try to turn around a Mississippi Valley State program that has historically struggled. The Delta Devils have the Southwestern Athletic Conference's smallest athletic budget.

Comegy replaces Karl Morgan, who was fired after a 2-9 season. Terms of Comegy's contract were not immediately released.
