Colorado football: Mississippi Valley State head coach Vincent Dancy joining Buffs’ staff – The Denver Post

Mississippi Valley State head football coach Vincent Dancy is joining the coaching staff at Colorado.

On Thursday, MVSU announced that Dancy has resigned to take a job as an assistant coach with the Buffaloes and new head coach Deion Sanders.

It’s unclear what position Dancy will coach, but he will most likely be a defensive assistant. He played linebacker and safety at Jackson State from 2002-05 and was defensive coordinator at Paine College in 2014 and MVSU from 2015-17 before being promoted to head coach.

CU and has yet to announce any assistant coach hires, but seven of the 10 positions have already been reported as Sanders, introduced as the Buffs’ head coach on Sunday, quickly builds his staff.

Dancy has been the head coach at MVSU since 2018. He had a record of 9-38 “despite numerous limitations regarding scholarships,” according to a press release from MVSU. The Delta Devils lost to Sanders’ Jackson State squad, 49-7, on Sept. 24.

“On behalf of Mississippi Valley State University, I want to extend our deepest appreciation to coach Vincent Dancy for his incredible leadership of our football program,” MVSU athletic director Hakim McClellan said in a news release. “The energy that he poured into his teams was a shining light for MVSU and a point of pride for all the Valley family. More importantly, while coach Dancy prepared his student-athletes for success on the field, he also ensured they were successful beyond football as proud graduates of Valley State.”

As reported earlier this week, Charles Kelly will become the Buffs’ defensive coordinator after being the associate defensive coordinator at Alabama for the past four years; and Sean Lewis left his position as head coach at Kent State to take the job as offensive coordinator for the Buffs.

Also joining Sanders’ staff is former Kent State offensive line coach Bill O’Boyle; and former Jackson State assistants Tim Brewster (tight ends), Andre Hart (linebackers) and Kevin Mathis (cornerbacks).
