Texas Southern University has named former Shaw University coach as the new head coach of the Tigers, after an extensive search over the past month.

 

Asberry, 39, was hired by TSU Athletic Director Charles McClelland. He becomes the 15th football coach in school history, beating out interim coach Kevin Ramsey. Ramsey, who recently completed his third season with the program, directed the defense in 2010, when the Tigers finished with the No. 1 defense in the Football Championship Subdivision. Despite its 4-7 mark in 2011, TSU is on track to finish first in total defense among FCS programs for the second consecutive season.
