Kent State hires Minnesota assistant Burns as new coach

Kent State has agreed to hire Minnesota associate head coach Kenni Burns to replace Sean Lewis, who left after five seasons, a person familiar with the deal confirmed to The Associated Press.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the schools had not announced the move.

Burns will be returning to the Mid-American Conference after working for one year with Minnesota coach P.J. Fleck at Western Michigan, which went 13-1 in 2016 and made Fleck one of the nation's most sought-after coaches. Burns followed Fleck to the Gophers in 2017.
