A person familiar with the decision says Southern Mississippi has hired Todd Monken as its next football coach.
The person says Monken will be introduced at a Tuesday afternoon news conference. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school had not publically announced Monken's hiring.
Monken has spent the past two seasons as Oklahoma State's offensive coordinator.
He will replace Ellis Johnson, who was fired after just one season in which the Golden Eagles finished 0-12.
It's the second time in five years that Southern Miss has turned to an Oklahoma State offensive coordinator to lead its program. The Golden Eagles hired Larry Fedora following the 2007 season and he guided them to a 34-19 record over four seasons before leaving for North Carolina.
