Twitter Is Very Excited About Jay Hopson To Southern Miss

If you take things like twitter reaction seriously, the choice of Southern Miss to replace former head coach Todd Monken with Alcorn State head coach Jay Hopson is a tremendous success.

Hopson is not the grand slam hire that Chip Lindsey would have been, but he is a coach that has been successful after taking over a program in turmoil. An Alcorn State team that was near the bottom of the FCS when Hopson took over is now the back to back defending SWAC champions. Hopson is a coach that the Southern Miss faithful can see leading them for 10-15 years successfully.

Southern Miss Athletic Director Bill McGillis took to twitter to show his checklist for hiring Hopson.

Let's take a look at some of the twitter reaction to Hopson's hiring, first from the fanbase.

Even the local media have great things to say about Hopson.

Alas, not everyone is thrilled Hopson as head coach at Southern Miss. Keep in mind that the overwhelming majority of the fan base is ecstatic with the former Alcorn State head coach making the move to Southern Miss.

Expect a more in depth look at Hopson, his stint at Alcorn State, and what he brings to Southern Miss in the next few days.
