A prior relationship with Shannon Dawson has led to Jack Wright leaving Northwest Mississippi Community College for a position at Southern Miss. <>
Wright, who helped lead the Rangers to the NJCAA national championship this past fall, is expected to be hired at Southern Miss on Jay Hopson's new staff as early as Monday. Dawson was just brought in to lead the offense, and Dawson and Wright worked together at Millsaps College.
Wright would coach the offensive line at Southern Miss, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. Wright informed his staff at NWCC that he would be leaving Wednesday night. No official announcement from Southern Miss has been issued.
