Virginia State set to hire former Spider coach Scott

ETTRICK, VA (WWBT) - Virginia State has tabbed its next head football coach, and it's a name that Central Virginia sports fans know well.

Multiple sources close to the program say VSU will name former University of Richmond head coach Latrell Scott its new head man on Monday.

Scott was 6-5 in 2010 as head coach of the Spiders.  He was fired 10 days before the start of the 2011 season after a DUI arrest.

He spent last season as the tight ends coach at James Madison.

Scott would replace Andrew Faison, who was reassigned following the 2012 season.  Faison went 58-53 in 11 seasons in Ettrick.
