Reports: A&M Hires Snyder As D-Coordinator; Several SEC Slots Still Open

If the word leaking out of College Station is to be believed, there’s one less open coordinator spot in the SEC.  Multiple sources are claiming that South Florida defensive coordinator Mark Snyder is set to take over the same job on Kevin Sumlin’s new staff at Texas A&M.

For those unfamiliar with Snyder, he served as the head coach at Marshall from 2005 through 2009.  Before that he’d had a four-year tour of duty as defensive coordinator at Ohio State.

If the Snyder hire is made official it will leave Florida (offensive), Alabama (offensive), Tennessee (defensive) and Auburn (offensive and defensive) as SEC schools still searching for new coordinators.

Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze has said he will handle play-calling duties in 2012 and may or may not hire an offensive coordinator.  He served as his own O-coordinator at Arkansas State last season.

Boise State offensive coordinator Brent Pease has been connected to the openings at Alabama and Florida.  Former head coaches Randy Shannon and Ron Zook have had their names tied to the open D-coordinator slots at both Auburn and Tennessee.

UPDATE — The Auburn defensive coordinator job has now been filled by Brian VanGorder, the former defensive coordinator with the Atlanta Falcons.
