Jenkins compiled a 46-14 record as Bethune-Cookman’s head ball coach and his teams earned at least a share of the MEAC crown in four of his five seasons (2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014) on the job.  Other notable accomplishments for Jenkins include:

  • winning three MEAC Coach of the Year Awards (’10, ’12, ’13),

  • leading the Wildcats to their first ever 10-0 start,
  • becoming the first Bethune head coach to defeat archrival FAMU in four consecutive seasons (’11-’14),
  • securing the program’s first two victories over an FBS squad (both against FIU), and
  • compiling an undefeated record against the SWAC of which Alabama State is a member.

Thank you Coach Jenkins for raising the profile of Bethune-Cookman football.
