University of Southern Mississippi names Dr. Joe Paul as president

The search for a new president at Southern Miss is finally over. The Board of Trustees of IHL voted to name Dr. Joe Paul as president.

Listening sessions held on Hattiesburg and Long Beach campuses showed the community thought Paul was the right person to fill the role.

The board also issued an online survey to allow as many students, alumni, faculty, staff, and community members to participate.

A formal announcement will take place as part of on-campus activities related to the football game on October 27th.

It will be held at 3 p.m. at the Thad Cochran Center on the USM Hattiesburg Campus.
