Former Kansas State head coach Ron Prince is heading to Rutgers University to become the school's offensive coordinator, the school announced Tuesday.

Prince's hiring was one of four moves made by head coach Kyle Flood. Linebackers coach Dave Cohen was also promoted to defensive coordinator, running backs coach Norries Wilson added the title of assistant coach and graduate assistant coach Anthony Campanile was named an offensive assistant.

Prince, 43, led Kansas State from 2006-08, compiling a 17-20 record. He worked as offensive coordinator at Virginia from 2001-05, and was the offensive line assistant for the Indianapolis Colts in 2010-11 and for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.

He replaces Dave Brock, who left to become the head coach at Delaware.

---LSU football legend Billy Cannon has been hospitalized after a stroke, but is alert and resting, his family told LSU Tuesday afternoon.

Doctors will conduct tests to determine the extent of the stroke, according to the family. Cannon, 75, will remain in ICU tonight. The family expressed its thanks for the prayers and concerns of friends and fans.

---Florida Atlantic University is expected to announce a marketing deal Tuesday with the GEO Group, a private correctional facilities management corporation, according to a report from OwlAccess.com.

The deal would include the naming rights to the school's on-campus stadium. The report said that GEO Group's CEO George Zoley is an FAU alum.

FAU had been seeking a corporate naming rights sponsor for years, and OwlAccess reported that the agreement was "believed to be valued at around $5 million."
