TCU linebacker coach Tony Tademy resigned earlier this week after seven seasons coaching the Horned Frogs.
Tademy’s replacement has not been announced but two sources said former Miami head coach Randy Shannon is a leading candidate.
Tademy, who has helped coach numerous TCU linebackers into the NFL, including David Hawthorne, Jason Phillips, Daryl Washington and Tank Carder, wanted to spend more time with his family and will likely take a high school assistant coaching job, several sources said. Two sources said Tademy is likely to be an assistant at Duncanville High School.
Tademy was hired at TCU in 2005 after two seasons as defensive coordinator at McKinney High School. The Jacksonville, Ark. native also spent time coaching at his alma mater Louisiana Tech, Howard University, Houston, and Louisiana-Lafayette.
Two TCU linebackers have earned all-conference accolades each season under Tademy, which is even more impressive when you consider under the Frogs’ 4-2-5 defensive scheme, only two linebackers are on the field.
