“Coach Mack is doing an outstanding job of leading our football program, so it is expected that his name will come up when other coaching opportunities become available. However, we do not publicly discuss whether or not conversations have taken place regarding personnel matters.”

From HBCU Gameday:

One of the bright stars of black college football coaching is leaving his post for an assistant gig at the FBS level.

North Carolina Central coach Jerry Mack is expected to join Mike Bloomgren’s staff at Rice, sources tell HBCU Gameday.

Hired as a first-time head coach in December 2013, Mack had a very successful tenure at NCCU. He led the program to a 31-15 record, including three MEAC titles. NCCU won 18 MEAC games in a row from 2015 through 2017 before losing three this past season.

Mack previously coached under Bloomgren as running backs coach at Delta State in 2005 when Bloomgren was the offensive coordinator.

North Carolina Central will join Florida A&M, Hampton and Delaware State as MEAC programs looking for new head coaches.
