When Power 5 jobs call, Group of 5 assistants leave. Everett Withers should disconnect the phones and put up some sort of lead facade to prevent cell phone signals. Once again, another Texas State assistant is taking a Power 5 gig, and as is typically the case, the timing sucks. Co-offensive coordinator Parker Fleming is heading to Ohio State on the eve of spring football.
Typically these guys will double their salary or better with these moves so you can't blame them. Withers promote Fleming to Co-OC after Brett Elliott left Texas State to head to Mississippi State. There are murmurings that Elliott might head back to San Marcos after Dan Mullen departed Starkville for Florida. We'll keep an eye on that.
