According to CBSSports.com’s Bruce Feldman, Texas A&M has hired Jake Spavital as the school’s new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Spavital has been at West Virginia the past two years as the Mountaineers’ quarterbacks coach.
“I am grateful for the opportunity that Dana (Holgorsen) has given me in my career,” Spavital said. “And I’m excited to get to A&M and continue with the success that they’ve had.”
Spavital has worked with Geno Smith at WVU and he previously coached Brandon Weeden at Oklahoma State. Now he’ll be able to work with Heisman-winner Johnny Manziel. Not a bad resume.
Spavital replaces Kliff Kingsbury who took over the head coaching job at Texas Tech this offseason.
