A person familiar with the decision says Southern Mississippi has hired Monken as its next football coach. The person says Monken will be introduced at a Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 11, 2012 news conference. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the school had not publically announced Monken's hiring. (AP Photo/The Oklahoman, Nate Billings)
