Ed Reed says Jackson State, other HBCU offered head coaching jobs amid Bethune-Cookman fallout

Jan 27, 2023

Hall of Famer Ed Reed voiced his displeasure with how negotiations panned out between him and the Bethune-Cookman football program.

Reed was tapped to be the Wildcats' next head football coach on Dec. 27, but the former NFL defensive back revealed Saturday that the university decided against ratifying his contract.

But earlier this week, Reed shared that two other HBCU football programs offered him coaching jobs amid his issues with BCU.

During an appearance Monday on the "Roland Martin Unfiltered" show, Reed was asked if other HBCU programs had contacted him about head coaching opportunities. The 44-year-old responded by revealing that he declined an offer from Jackson State.
