Jackson State hires former Central coach Woodrow Lowe

Former Central High coach Woodrow Lowe has joined the coaching staff at Jackson State, the school confirmed Tuesday.

Lowe will be coaching the linebackers.

The Tigers went 5-7 last season and 3-6 in the SWAC.

Harold Jackson is the head coach. Alonzo Lee was hired in February as the team's new defensive coordinator.

Lowe was fired by Central last year after four seasons as head coach with a 33-14 record and one region championship.

Lowe graduated from Central in 1972 and went on to be a three-time All-American at Alabama. He also played 12 seasons in the NFL for the San Diego Chargers.
