FAMU hires Kellen Winslow

By Brett McMurphy

Pro Football Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow, Sr. is the new Athletic Director(AD) at Florida A&M Rattlers, sources said recently.

Winslow, 56, is expected to be introduced as the school’s AD on this week, sources said.

Previously Winslow was vice president for athletics and wellness at Lakeland College in Plymouth, Wis., from August 2012 until resigning on March 29, 2013.

Prior to his eight-month stint at Lakeland College, Winslow was athletic director at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio, for four years.

Winslow played nine seasons (1979-87) with the San Diego Chargers. He earned All-Pro honors five times and is considered one of the greatest tight ends in NFL history.

Winslow graduated from the University of Missouri – he’s also a member of the College Football Hall of Fame — and later earned a law degree from the University of San Diego in 1993.

At Florida A&M, Winslow replaces Michael Smith, who had been serving as the school’s interim athletic director for the past 10 months. Smith had replaced Derek Horne, who was fired last June after three years at the helm.
