Norfolk State football coach Latrell Scott received some national recognition this week after being named to the FootballScoop’s 2020-21 Minority Coaches Watch List. The list includes both college and professional football coaches.

Scott, who is entering his sixth season at Norfolk State, was joined on the list by Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy and San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator who could both be in line NFL head coaching jobs soon. Before joining the Spartans program Scott was the head coach at Virginia State University in addition to assistant coaching stints at Tennessee, Virginia and VMI.

New Jackson State head coach Deion Janders was also named to the list along with current William & Mary coach Mike London Sr. According to the FootballScoop, the list is “an attempt to showcase and spotlight the important and undeniable rise of minority coaches in the game.”
