Frazier tabbed as new NCCU football coach

Durham, NC (Sports Network) - North Carolina Central University has named Henry Frazier III as the school's new head football coach.

Frazier replaces interim head coach Darryl Bullock, who took over after Mose Rison was fired following a 2-4 start to the 2010 season. The Eagles finished the campaign at 3-8.

The 42-year-old Frazier stepped down from the top job at Prairie View A&M on Monday night. He compiled a 43-30 mark during his seven-year tenure with the Panthers and was the 2009 Eddie Robinson Award recipient as the top FCS coach.

Frazier also fashioned a 26-24 record in five seasons as the head coach at Bowie State, his alma mater.

He will begin his five-year term on January 1, 2011 and will be paid an annual salary of $225,000.
