PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas -- Prairie View A&M on Monday hired Henry Frazier as the 22nd football coach in school history.

Frazier, who built a 26-24 record in five years at Bowie State University in Maryland, takes over a downtrodden program that just recently began offering full scholarships again.

Prairie View went 1-9 overall and 0-7 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference last season. The school fired first-year coach C.L. Whittington afterward, later revealing that an internal investigation concluded he had hit two players during summer workouts.
