Hampton University introduced Robert Prunty as their next head football coach on Friday afternoon.

It's something of a homecoming for Prunty. He is a native of Chatham VA and actually started his college football career at Hampton.

Prunty was the defensive coordinator and associate head coach at East Carolina for just this past season. Before that he spent three years each coaching at Cincinnati and Texas Tech.

His coaching career started at the high level in Virginia. He turned Gretna High and Hargrave Military Academy into successful programs.

This is his first job as a head coach at the college level.
