CLEVELAND (AP) - Darrell Hazell is expected to leave Kent State to coach Purdue, according to reports.
Hazell, who in his second year led the Golden Flashes to an 11-2 record and their first bowl since 1972, had not told Kent State officials he was leaving as of late Tuesday night. However, a person close to Kent State's program said Hazell has scheduled a Wednesday morning meeting with his staff and players.
Purdue officials flew to Ohio and met with Hazell on Monday, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because nothing has been made official.
ESPN.com and CBSSportsline.com, citing unidentified sources, reported Hazell has accepted the Purdue job.
An assistant at Ohio State under Jim Tressel before taking over at Kent State, Hazell was the Mid-American Conference's coach of the year this season.
The Golden Flashes will play Arkansas State in the GoDaddy.com Bowl on Jan. 6.
