Texas A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin announced the majority of his staff today, including offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Kliff Kingsbury and defensive coordinator Mark Snyder.
Kingsbury, a former Texas Tech quarterback, is one of three offensive assistants who were part of Sumlin’s staff last season at Houston. The others are offensive line coach B.J. Anderson and running backs coach/recruiting coordinator Clarence McKinney. The Cougars finished 13-1 last season and led the nation in total offense (599.1 yards per game), passing offense (450.1 avg.) and scoring (49.3 avg.).
Snyder, a former head football coach at Marshall (2005-09), spent last season as the defensive coordinator at South Florida. The lone holdover from predecessor Mike Sherman’s staff will be defensive line coach Terrell Williams, who oversaw a unit that helped A&M lead the nation in sacks last season (51).
Other members of Sumlin’s staff announced Friday include wide receivers coach David Beaty, special teams/tight ends coach Brian Polian, strength and conditioning coach Larry Jackson and Justin Moore, the associate athletic director for football.
