Tennessee State hires Illinois St assistant Collins as coach

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee State has hired Illinois State assistant Brian "Penny" Collins as its men's basketball coach.

The 34-year-old Collins was formally introduced at a Monday news conference. Collins replaces Dana Ford, who left for Missouri State after going 57-65 in four seasons.

This marks a return to Tennessee State for Collins, who worked on the Tigers' staff as a graduate assistant in 2007-08 and a director of operations in 2009-12.
