The Warhawks are on the hunt to fill another vacant role on the coaching staff.

NLU great, and Warren High School alum, Alonzo Hampton and Arkansas-Pine Bluff agree on a three-year deal to become the next head coach of the Golden Lions. The news was first reported by Pete Thamel from ESPN.

Hampton served as a special teams coordinator and assistant head coach to Terry Bowden in 2022. Hampton was part of Bowden’s initial staff when he was hired in 2020.

The former Lumberjack was a four-year letterman for the then, NLU Indians. His career later took him to the Frankfurt Galaxy, as part of the now defunct NFL Europe.

The Golden Lions finished 3-8 in 2022.
