Howard University plans to hire Michigan offensive analyst Ron Prince as its next head coach, per a report from FootballScoop.com.
Prince joined the Wolverines coaching staff as an analyst prior to the 2018 season after working as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach with the Detroit Lions from 2015-17. He was let go following the firing of Jim Caldwell at end of the 2017-18 NFL season.
Before his stint with the Lions, Prince held positions as an assistant at Dodge City Community College, Alabama A&M, South Carolina State, James Madison, Cornell and Virginia before getting his first head coaching opportunity at Kansas State in 2006, where he succeeded longtime Wildcats coach Bill Snyder and proceeded to compile a 17-20 record in three years. (Snyder returned to Kansas State in 2009 after Prince was fired.)
Price will replace Mike London, who had been the Howard head coach for the past two seasons until he agreed to an offer to take the same position at William & Mary a few weeks back.
