JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Belhaven has hired former Kentucky coach Hal Mumme to lead its football program.
The 61-year-old was the passing game coordinator under June Jones at Southern Methodist in 2013. This will be Mumme's seventh head coaching job and he is widely known for his prolific passing offenses.
Mumme's most high profile job was at Kentucky from 1997-2000, where he coached quarterback Tim Couch, who was the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft in 1999.
Belhaven, a small private school that plays in the NAIA, finished with a 3-8 record last season. The school announced the hire on Friday.
Belhaven President Roger Parrott said in a school release that, ''I am excited for our students, our players, and our alumni, because Belhaven football is going to join the `Air-Raid' and soar.''
