Report: Southern Miss to interview Murray State's Hatcher
WDAM-TV in Hattiesburg, MS is reporting Southern Miss will interview Murray State football coach Chris Hatcher at some point in the next week to fill their head coaching vacancy.
Southern Miss is looking to replace Larry Fedora who left for North Carolina.
WDAM-TV tells us a source close to the search committee says the committee plans to travel to Atlanta and New Orleans within the next week to interview both Hatcher and Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart.
We reached out to Hatcher through the Murray State sports information department Wednesday night but did not get a response.
Murray State Athletics Director Allen Ward tells us no one has contacted him for permission to speak with Hatcher -- although asking for permission is considered a courtesy and generally isn't a mandate.
