Richard Kent Austin will be Cornell's 26th football coach, multiple sources close to the situation confirmed today, replacing Jim Knowles '87 as the Roger J. Weiss '61 Head Coach of Football.
Austin was offensive coordinator at the University of Mississippi for the past two seasons, the same school at which Knowles was defensive coordinator before coming to Cornell.
In 2009, the Rebels were tied for No. 39 in the country in scoring offense with 32.9 points per game.
Austin's 2008 offense ranked No. 28 in the country with 32.1 points per game, up from 20.1 the prior year.
The University will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. tomorrow to announce the signing.
