Mark Richt’s reportedly made a hire to replace his defensive line coach who departed for greener pastures in Tuscaloosa.
InsideTheU has learned that Atlanta Falcons defensive assistant Jess Simpson is expected to be Miami’s next defensive line coach.
Simpson is billed as one of the most successful coaches in Georgia prep football history. He was the head coach at Buford High for 12 seasons and won seven state titles. The Auburn graduate spent the 2016 season as Georgia State’s defensive line/assistant head coach.
Interesting move, no? I would assume that means Miami intends to recruit Richt’s old stomping grounds more heavily.
