Jackson State University has decided not to renew head football coach John Hendrick’s contract.

JSU Athletics made an official announcement Monday in a statement.

“In consultation with President Hudson and after a thorough review and evaluation of all aspects of our football program, I have decided that a change in leadership is in the best interest of our program and university,” Director of Athletics Ashley Robinson said. “I want to thank Coach Hendrick for the hard work he has done with our football program. I wish John much success in the future.”

Hendrick had a 6-9 record in two seasons as head coach of the program. He became the interim head coach in the middle of the 2018 season.

Assistant coaches T.C. Taylor and Ottis Riddley will take over the team until a new head coach is hired for the Tigers.

The St. Aloysius Flashettes dance team won their sixth consecutive state title Monday at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson, Mississippi.

The team is well coached by Chesley Lambiotte and won in the division 4A Pom and Jazz dance category.

“This is the most dedicated group of young ladies, and they worked so hard for this title,” Lambiotte said.

“Our motto is quality over quantity, and all the ladies are so disciplined and overall great leaders,” Lambiotte said.

The Flashettes have 12 members who put in hard work every day. They have exceeded their expectations and will continue to strive for greatness as they celebrate another year as champions.
