Ricky Diggs, an assistant coach at the Air Force Academy, is expected to be named head football coach at Morgan State University this afternoon when the school holds a news conference.
Diggs, the wide-receivers coach in his year at Air Force, would replace Ed Wyche, who was fired after three years and a 1-10 record in 1990.
This will be the first head coaching position for Diggs, 37, a Harrisburg, Pa., native.
Morgan State has not had a winning record since the 1979 team went 9-1 and lost in the first round of the Division II playoffs. In the 1980s, the Bears had six head coaches and a combined 21-79 record. From 1984-89, the team won more than one game only once.
