MTSU completes staff with Mike Polly, announces other staff moves

Mike Polly has been hired as Middle Tennessee State’s running backs coach. Polly, a former MTSU graduate assistant, spent the past three years at Murray State where he coached offensive tackles. Brent Brock has been elevated to recruiting coordinator and a newly-created director of life skills position. Justin Watts will coach the wide receivers and turn over recruiting duties to Brock. A member of Stockstill’s first staff in 2006, Brock missed the Blue Raiders’ game vs. South Alabama last season due to health reasons but will be able to recruit off-the-field thanks to the passage of NCAA proposal 11-2.
