Kent State Hires Former North Carolina Coach Dick Crum

Two months after he resigned under pressure from his coaching job at North Carolina, Dick Crum was named Tuesday as head football coach at Kent State.

Before he went to North Carolina, where he had a 72-41-3 record, Crum coached Kent State rival Miami of Ohio to a 34-10-1 record between 1974 and 1977. In 1974, Miami was ranked 10th nationally, the highest finish ever by a Mid-American Conference team.

Crum replaces Glen Mason, who accepted the head coaching job at the University of Kansas on Dec. 29.
