FAMU's Willie Simmons has been recognized as one of the top 45 minority coaches under 45 to watch for future Division I head-coaching jobs by ESPN. Coach Simmons is 45-21 as an FCS coach with top-25 finishes in the past two seasons that the Rattlers competed.
The former Clemson quarterback has FBS coordinator experience at Middle Tennessee State University. As any HBCU fam would know, this kind of recognition doesn't come without years of HARD work, dedication, and loyalty to the HBCU culture! We're all so proud of Coach Simmons and all that he's accomplished. HBCUs represent!
