Hopson resigns as USM head coach

Vicksburg native Jay Hopson is out as the University of Southern Mississippi head football coach.

Hopson plans to resign his post just one game into the 2020 season, according to a report by Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports and Brett McMurphy of Stadium.

The decision was made just days after the Golden Eagles lost to South Alabama in a 32-21 in an upset on Saturday.

Hopson became the Golden Eagles head coach in 2016 after leading Alcorn to two SWAC Championships.  He has a head coaching record at USM of 28-23.

Hopson finished last season with a 7-6 record and a loss to Tulane in the Armed Forces Bowl Game.
