BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Kevin Manns, longtime Southern sports information director, is leaving Baton Rouge to become Assistant Athletic Director for Media Relations at Winston-Salem State University.
A native of West Virginia and a former cornerback at Guilford College in Greensboro, N.C., Manns previously served as SID at Winston-Salem State from 1993-96, then spent four years at Alabama State from 1996-2000. From there, he moved to Southern where he had been SID for the past 11 years.
Manns had been named SWAC sports information director of the year for two of the past three years.
"He's going to take us to the next level because he's very experienced at what he does," WSSU AD Bill Hayes told the Winston-Salem Journal. "He did some fantastic work at Southern."
