Kane Wommack was named the head football coach at the University of South Alabama on Dec. 12, 2020. At 34 years old, he became the third head coach since the inception of South’s program and the youngest of any head coach at the FBS level. Kane and his wife Melissa returned to Mobile after his first stint as the Jaguars’ defensive coordinator in 2016 and ’17. He came back to South after spending three years as linebackers coach at Indiana including serving as the Hoosiers’ defensive coordinator his final two seasons, where he was named a finalist for the award given to the top NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision assistant coach last season: the Broyles Award.
In just his second season as the Head Coach at South Alabama, Wommack has led the Jaguars to their winningest season as an FBS program and their 3rd bowl game berth in program history, with two regular season games left to play!
Kane and his wife Melissa have three sons, Asher, Tatum, and Jones and they are all thrilled to be back in Mobile, the city they call home!
