GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Tremaine Jackson has left the Colorado Mesa football program. Hired as head coach in December 2019, Jackson led the Mavericks to a 10-3 record over two seasons.

Jackson will become Valdosta State’s next head football coach. The Georgia school reached the Division II championship game in 2021, losing to Ferris State. Valdosta has a press conference scheduled for Thursday at 12 p.m. where Tremaine Jackson will be officially introduced as their new head coach.

In a statement through VSU, Jackson said, “I am honored and humbled to be named the Head Football Coach at Valdosta State University...I cannot wait to get to Titletown USA to meet the local community and begin our work on the 2022 season!”

Colorado Mesa University president John Marshall released a statement saying in part, “It’s with excitement and optimism that we launch a national search for the next head football coach of Colorado Mesa University. We will recruit a dynamic leader of good character befitting the great tradition and outstanding young men of our football program,”

CMU will now search for its third head football coach in four years.
