Kent State has hired Arkansas defensive coordinator Paul Haynes as its next head football coach, less than a month after Darrell Hazell announced he's leaving to coach at Purdue. Haynes is a 1992 Kent alum --- he was a walk-on on the football team and was defensive backs coach from 1999 to 2000. He also worked with Hazell at Ohio State under Jim Tressel.

Haynes will inherit a Kent State team that is coming off of its best season in school history. WKSU commentator Terry Pluto talks to Amanda Rabinowitz about what Haynes brings to the position, what Kent State is likely to pay him.
