from John Dell at the Winston-Salem Journal and CLICK HERE to read all:
Connell Maynor, who led Winston-Salem State to an 8-2 record in his first season as a head coach, has applied for the vacant head coachâ€™s position at N.C. A&T, his alma mater.
Maynor was a three-year starter for the Aggies in the 1990s and graduated in 1995. Athletics Director Bill Hayes of WSSU said he knew Maynor had applied but said that alone doesnâ€™t mean much.
â€œI know when I was a young coach, I applied to a lot of places, too,â€ said Hayes, the all-time wins leader at A&T with a 106-64 record and Maynorâ€™s former college coach.
Maynor, 41, could not be reached for comment. He signed a five-year contract with WSSU worth $90,000 a year.
