"It's a great feeling," Barlow said. "A lot of coaches go through their entire life, their entire career looking of their dream job. As of today, I have mine."

Barlow was named interim head coach on March 26, 2007, following the departure of Charles Coe to the National Football League’s Oakland Raiders.

Barlow spent the past two seasons as ASU's quarterbacks coach. He was the mentor and tutor to former Hornet star and current NFL quarterback Tarvaris Jackson.

Barlow, a Montgomery native, broke several records as a player at ASU, including receptions and receiving yards.

After a stellar career at ASU, Barlow spent eight years in the NFL, playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders.

"Alabama State has been great to me and my family," Barlow said. "This is my opportunity to give back to all those who have been so good to me."
