Source: Kent St. to hire Paul Haynes
Paul Haynes, who spent last season as Arkansas' defensive coordinator, will be named Kent State's coach Tuesday, a source told ESPN's Brett McMurphy.
Haynes is an alum of Kent State where he walked on as a defensive back in 1987. He played four seasons and finished as the school's seventh all-time leading tackler.
The school will introduce Haynes in a 2:30 p.m. press conference Tuesday.
Before joining Arkansas in 2011 he was an assistant for seven seasons at Ohio State as the Buckeyes' defensive backs coach from 2005-10. He also was an assistant at Louisville and Michigan State.
Haynes replaces Darrell Hazell, who left to replace Danny Hope at Purdue.
