WASHINGTON (AP)Howard University has hired Larry Scott as its new head coach.

Scott’s hiring was announced Wednesday, less than two months after Ron Prince stepped down after less than a season on the job.. Prince resigned on Dec. 7, about a month after he was placed on administrative leave amid an ongoing investigation into allegations about his conduct, including verbal abuse of players.

Scott had been tight ends coach at Florida under Dan Mullen the last two seasons.

”I’m really happy for Larry,” Mullen said. ”He’d been in the mix for several jobs, didn’t get it, and had this opportunity, and he and I met on multiple occasions on it. … Obviously everybody wants to have the opportunity to be a head coach and run your own program and implement it your way.”

Scott will be introduced in a news conference Thursday.
