The Coaching Wire: Monday, March 18. 2013
North Greenville (D-II): Sources tell us that Dustin Ramsey will be defensive line coach on Jeff Farrington’s Crusaders staff. Ramsey has been linebackers coach at Georgia Military College (JC) the past two seasons. Prior to that, Ramsey was a graduate assistant at Appalachian State and Western Carolina.
Mississippi State: Scott Sallach will return to an on-field position as tight ends coach. Sallach coached the Bulldogs’ tight ends since 2009, but was moved to scouting coordinator when Billy Gonzales was hired in February. Tim Brewster left for Florida State last month, opening the spot for Sallach to return to the field.
Idaho: Offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Kris Cinkovich has added the assistant head coach title.
James Madison (FCS): Mickey Matthews has officially named former N.C. State head coach Mike O’Cain as the Dukes’ offensive coordinator. As we reported last month, O’Cain has been the favorite since Hal Mumme turned the position down to join the SMU staff. O’Cain spent the last eight seasons as Virginia Tech’s quarterbacks coach before being let go in January.
Arizona State: LSU director of player personnel Sherman Morris will be Arizona State’s assistant athletic director for recruiting. Morris joined the LSU staff in 2007. A south Florida native, he coached at Glades Central and Deerfield Beach (Fla.) high schools before LSU.
Austin Peay (FCS): Central Michigan defensive backs coach Kirby Cannon will be named head coach at a 10 a.m. press conference on Tuesday.
