The Athletic‘s Bruce Feldman is reporting that new Marshall football coach has more names lined up as expected hires for his first staff in Huntington.
Several of those names have already been reported elsewhere, but there were some new additions to the list of potential new Thundering Herd assistant coaches in Feldman’s report.
Bill Legg, the former Marshall offensive coordinator who has most recently been serving as an assistant to head coach Neal Brown at West Virginia, will come back to MU as the tight ends coach according to Feldman. Other new names in the report are Arizona’s Jeremy Spring as Huff’s special teams coordinator and Miami’s Telly Lockette as running backs coach — a position Huff is very familiar with.
SOURCE: FAU safeties coach Lance Guidry is expected to become Marshall's DC. UT-Martin Co-DC Dominique Bowman is expected to coach CBs. Other Marshall hires: #Miami’s Telly Lockette as RB coach; Jeremy Springer as STC; WVU’s Bill Legg as TEs; Ralph Street-DL; Shannon Morrison-LBs
