Comegy building coaching staff at Mississippi Valley State

Itta Bena, MS (SportsNetwork.com) - New Mississippi Valley State head football coach Rick Comegy tabbed Darrin Hayes as his defensive coordinator in announcing five of his assistant coaches on Monday.

Hayes spent the last eight seasons as Comegy's defensive coordinator at Jackson State. The two combined on a Southwestern Athletic Conference championship in 2007.

Gregory Black (offensive line) and Jonathan Thompson (defensive line) also followed Comegy across the SWAC from Jackson State to Mississippi Valley State. In addition, Comegy added Jack Bush (recruiting coordinator/strength coach) and James "Jimmy" Joe (wide receivers) to his new staff.

Comegy has taken over a Mississippi Valley State team that finished 2-9 last season. He has a 164-86 career record over 22 seasons at Tuskegee, Cheyney, Central State and Jackson State.
