BOWIE - Bowie State University has named Michael J. Lynn Jr. as football coach to replace Henry Frazier, who accepted the head coaching position at Prairie View A&M.

"I'm very excited about the opportunity afforded to me," said Lynn, who joins the Bulldogs after serving as director of football operations and offensive line coach at Morgan State the past two seasons.

Lynn began his coaching career at Suitland High in Forestville, where he served as assistant football coach (1996-1999) and wrestling coach (1995-2000). Lynn played at Morgan State, where he lettered all four years as a guard.

"This is an exciting day for the athletic department of Bowie State," said athletic director Derek Carter. "We're looking forward to a successful relationship that continues our winning program and allows us to assist in the development and maturation of our student-athletes."

Lynn, 35, graduated from Morgan State in 1990 with a degree in political science. A native of the Washington area, he and his wife, Gayle, have a daughter, Briana, and a son, Michael III, and they live in Fort Washington.
