LORMAN — Two days after its spring game, Alcorn State’s football program announced a major staff move.

Ryan Stanchek was promoted to offensive coordinator on Monday, continuing his steady climb up the ranks of the team’s coaching staff. Stanchek spent three years as Alcorn’s offensive line coach and last season as its run game coordinator.

The Braves won the Southwestern Athletic Conference East Division championship all four years he’s coached at Alcorn, and put nine offensive linemen on the All-SWAC teams.

Alcorn ranked No. 1 in the NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision last season with 6.42 yards per carry, and was in the top 10 in rushing offense (237.4 yards per game) and total offense (461.3 yards per game). The Braves led the SWAC in all three categories.

“I am thankful to Coach (Fred) McNair for entrusting me with this added responsibility. Coach McNair is a man of tremendous integrity and I am blessed to be a part of his staff,” Stanchek said in a school release. “We would like to thank the Alcornites for embracing my family with open arms the past five seasons. We, as an offensive staff, are going to find ways to enhance and build upon our past success with clear eyes on our future.”
