Former NFL cornerback Derrick Burroughs will be Lane College's next football coach, a source told The Jackson Sun.
Lane will announce Burroughs at a 3 p.m. press conference in the J.K. Daniels Conference Center on campus. He will replace Trent Boykin, who was let go earlier this week.
Burroughs was a first-round selection of the Buffalo Bills in 1985, playing until an injury ended his career in 1990.
The Mobile, Ala., native is a University of Memphis product, was named the Most Valuable Player of the 1985 Blue/Gray game and was a Senior Bowl participant.
He most recently was a defensive backs coach and administrative assistant for the New York Sentinels of the newly created United Football League.
After coaching with several NFL Europe, Arena Football and XFL squads, Burroughs was the Clark-Atlanta defensive coordinator in 2006 and the Stillman defensive coordinator in 2006 and the Stillman defensive backs coach in 2007 before taking the same position at Alabama State in 2008.
