Larry Kennan, the longtime head of the NFL Coaches Association, has left the position to coach at the University of the Incarnate Word, a source tells me.
Kennan has fought for some 15 years for the rights of assistant coaches but a source says he left the position this week for an opportunity to coach his son at the school. Kennan's appointment at the football program is expected to be announced on Thursday.
No immediate replacement has been named but it's expected one will after the season.
Before his departure Kennan was involved in talks with owners about improving the salaries and benefits packages for assistant coaches.
