BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA) – Southern University’s next head football coach could be an NFL legend.
Geaux Nation confirmed with a source that Marshall Faulk, a former Super Bowl Champion, NFL Most Valuable Player is a candidate for the head coaching job at Southern University.
Faulk was inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2011.
The Jaguars vacancy comes after former head coach Dawson Odums took the same position at Norfolk State this offseason.

The 12-year pro works for the NFL Network as an analyst but hasn’t taken a head coaching job since his playing days.
