Itta Bena, MS (SportsNetwork.com) - Rick Comegy already has current scouting reports on his opponents.

He's simply switched schools in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.

On Tuesday, Mississippi Valley State University named the former Jackson State football coach as its new head coach.

Comegy, 60, led Jackson State to the 2007 SWAC championships and appearances in the last two title games while compiling a 55-35 record in eight seasons.

His tenure with the Tigers was troubled at times, including the team's 2011 ban from the postseason due to its poor NCAA Academic Progress Rate scores.

Unlike his ability to reload at Jackson State, Comegy has to rebuild with Mississippi Valley State. He is replacing Karl Morgan, whose contract was not renewed at Mississippi Valley State after he compiled an 8-35 record in four seasons, including 2-9 this past year.

Comegy has a 171-87-2 career record over 22 seasons at Tuskegee, Cheyney, Central State and Jackson State.
