Why Hiring Hue Jackson would be a Huge Mistake for Morehouse College

Morehouse College’s football program is in negotiation with Hue Jackson but his record of past coaching failures makes him unfit for the position. Jackson’s NFL career saw him achieve a dismal record of 11-44 across two teams, and his stint at Grambling was equally disappointing. The hiring of coach Art Briles, who was fired for being an alleged serial rape enabler at Baylor, revealed Jackson’s disregard for integrity. Morehouse College, a Black college for Black men, should not cheapen itself by hiring a coach who does not prioritize the entire student body.
