WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – WSSU defensive coordinator, Richard Hayes Jr., has been named the new head coach at Fayetteville State, as announced today by the FSU Department of Athletics.

Hayes has been an integral part of WSSU’s success over the past five seasons, and most recently served as the defensive coordinator for the 2015 CIAA Champion Winston-Salem State University Rams. He joined the WSSU football coaching staff in 2010 as an assistant coach working with the defensive backs and special teams. Hayes won three CIAA Championships (2011, 2012, 2015), made four conference championship appearances (2011-12; 2014-15), and complied a record of 60-13 as a member of the Rams coaching staff.

“Richard Hayes has been a valuable part of our Ram Football Family successes”, said Kienus Boulware, WSSU head coach. “It makes me happy to see him achieve his goal of becoming a head football coach. It also saddens me to lose him as a member of my staff but it’s a part of the process. He will be missed dearly”, added Boulware.

“We will move as quickly as possible in identifying a replace so that we can have a smooth transition into spring practice”, said Boulware.

“Certainly we wish the very best for Richard Hayes as he enters the next chapter of his professional career”, said Tonia Walker, WSSU Director of Athletics.

“It will definitely be a big loss for us because his role extends beyond the football field. They say great things happen to great people and this holds true for Coach Hayes in his dedication to changing the lives of young men through the game of football. I’m very proud for him and his family. He is sure to bring success to the Fayetteville State football program”, added Walker.
