Clarksville, TN (KATC) Mark Hudspeth will be the next head coach at Austin Peay University. It was first reported by FootballScoop.com. 

The former Ragin’ Cajun head football coach spent 2018 as an assistant at Mississippi State. Hudspeth led Louisiana to five New Orleans Bowls in seven season, but finished with an official record of 29-38 after having 22 wins vacated due to NCAA infractions.

Louisiana dismissed Hudspeth following the 2017 season after three consecutive losing seasons.

Austen Peay is an NCAA Division I-FCS program competing in the Ohio Valley Conference.
