Paul Haynes, Kent State’s head football coach, has returned to his alma mater. After time in the NFL and alongside former Ohio State coach Jim Tressel, Haynes is stepping into the shadow of his predecessor, Darrell Hazell, and the best football season in university history. In an exclusive interview with The Burr, Haynes speaks about the game, his faith and why — if he has things his way — he’s here to stay. By Nick Shook.
