With confirmation of DL Coach Tony Jerod-Eddie, Mike Elko’s staff appears complete

NCAA Football: Big 12 Football Media Days Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Unlike the hiring of WR Coach Holmon Wiggins, this hire has been rumored/expected for a while, but sources are now publicly confirming that Texas A&M Head Coach Mike Elko will retain Tony Jerod-Eddie on his new staff as a Defensive Line Coach.

Jerod-Eddie is the lone holdover from Jimbo Fisher’s staff, where he was an off-field assistant before being promoted to an on-field role following Fisher’s firing. Jerod-Eddie has seemed to be active on the recruiting trail for Elko over the past month (at least the parts of the month that weren’t a recruiting dead period), so this hire was essentially a foregone conclusion.

Jerod-Eddie is of course a former Texas A&M player, playing on the defensive line under Mike Sherman. As a Texas kid (went to DeSoto), he should continue to bring value to his expanded role
