FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State has hired former Atlanta Falcons assistant Charlie Jackson as football coach. It will be his first heading coaching job.

Jackson spent the last two seasons as a defensive assistant with the NFL Falcons and has worked with the Denver Broncos and Green Bay Packers. His college experience includes stints at Colorado, Utah State, Buffalo and Air Force, where he played football. Jackson was also an executive with the NCAA Football Rules Enforcement Group from 2013-16.
