Texas State Football added Troy Douglas to the coaching staff as the new safeties coach for the Bobcats. Douglas was an assistant coach at Sam Houston State this past spring before joining the Cats. He had previously been a defensive backs coach at Michigan State, University of South Florida and the University of North Carolina where he worked under Withers.
“Troy is an excellent fit in the culture of Texas State Football,” said Everett Withers. “He has a great coaching history and experience coaching great players at programs around the country and in the state of Texas.”
Interesting fact: Douglas was also a four-year starter at wide receiver for Appalachian State, compiling 90 receptions for 1,401 yards.
In addition to the defensive backs change, defensive coordinator Randall McCray will move to coach the inside linebackers. McCray coached the safeties before the arrival of Douglas.
Texas State Football also added Michael George as the director of player personnel. George served four seasons at Ohio as the director of player personnel and high school relations.
“We also are excited to bring Mike’s recruiting knowledge and expertise to San Marcos,” said Withers. “He will add immediate value to our recruiting efforts for years to come.”
