Brian Jenkins isn’t leaving Alabama just yet.

The former Alabama State head coach is expected to be named wide receivers coach at Alabama A&M under Connell Maynor, as first reported by WZDX (Huntsville) sports director Mo Carter.


Maynor was hired as Bulldogs’ coach last week in place of James Spady, who was fired after four seasons.

Jenkins, 46, was fired at Alabama State following an 0-5 start to the 2017 season. In nearly three seasons as Hornets’ coach, Jenkins went 9-17 overall and 8-11 in SWAC play.

Prior to his unsuccessful stint at Alabama State, Jenkins won at least a share of four MEAC championships while at Bethune-Cookman, going 46-14 in five seasons.
