ICC has new defensive coordinator

Itawamba Community College head football coach Jeff Terrill didn’t have to look far to find his new defensive coordinator.

Kenny Jackson has been Terrill’s defensive line coach the last five years, four of which he has mentored a lineman that finished among the nation’s top five in sacks, and now he’ll add coordinator on defense to his responsibilities on the line.

“I just believe the experience Kenny has gained has made him ready and able to be an excellent defensive coordinator in this league,” said Terrill, who had been the program’s defensive coordinator the last four seasons.

“I’m grateful for this opportunity,” said Jackson. “I’m looking forward to this challenge of being in charge of our defense.”

Jackson played for Terrill when he was the defensive coordinator at Hinds Community College and was among the Mississippi JUCO Top Ten before the New Orleans native transferred to Ole Miss where he was a standout for two seasons with the Rebels. He also played with the NFL’s Detroit Lions and the Columbus Destroyers of the Arena Football League.

Jackson, Terrill and the rest of the ICC coaches are at the Tupelo Country Club today (Monday) for the College’s annual golf tourney, where a record 120 golfers will participate in the event.
