Just browsing through Coachingsearch.com and found some interesting tidbits (this is a great website, btw):
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Oak Ridge HS (FL) head coach Elijah Williams will be named running backs / recruiting coordinator at FAMU.
Jimbo Fisher has stated, "There is no offensive coordinator." Some thought Fisher may give the title to one of his offensive assistant coaches, but not so. Jimbo also explained why replacing 6 assistant coaches "hasn't been an issue at all."
A source has informed me that Ole Miss director of recruiting development Tyler Siskey will join the Alabama staff.
The salaries of three new assistants have been revealed. Per TideSports.com, offensive line coach Mario Cristobal will make $475,000 in the first year of his contract, while defensive backs coach Greg Brown and and wide receivers coach Billy Napier will make $300,000. Each will make more in their first season than their predecessors.
East Tennessee State:
The Johnson City Times is reporting Phillip Fulmer
was on campus last week to meet with ETSU officials.
Brian White will coach the punt team, Travaris Robinson will coach the kick-off and punt return units, and Joker Phillips will handle kick-off return.
According to the Marietta Daily Journal, Murray State head coach Chris Hatcher has interviewed for the Kennesaw State job. (I always liked Chris Hatcher and thought he'd end up as a bigtime D1 coach....having played under Hal Mumme at Valdosta State)
ElevanWarriors.com is reporting that fomer Ohio State defensive coordinator Jim Heacock is in talks with Urban Meyer about returning to Ohio State in some capacity.

Head coach Dave Clawson has received a pay raise to $400,000 annual base salary. He previously earned $368,000 annually. Clawson is under contract through June 30, 2019. (I posted this to show how little some D1 head coaches make. I wonder what Eli Williams salary as RB's coach at FAMU will be?)
According to the Orlando Sentinel, head coach George O'Leary is on the verge of signing a 2-year extension through the 2017 season.
Defensive line coach Brad Lawing has received a 3-year deal worth $390,000 annually, according to the Palm Beach Post. Joker Phillips will be paid $265,000 annually on a 2-year deal, while DJ Durkin will now earn $490,000 on a 2-year deal.
Sources tell me that Ashland University defensive backs coach Joe Palcic has joined the Alabama staff as a defensive quality control assistant. Palcic had actually recently accepted the special teams coordinator job at Miami (OH) before opting to join Nick Saban's staff at Alabama.
Sources tell me former Northwestern State tight ends / special teams coordinator / assistant head coach Brendan Farrell and former Jacksonville State offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach have joined the Alabama staff in a quality control roles.
(Saban convinces these guys to forgo a job as an assistant coach...to be a "quality control assistant". Unreal!)

Each of the new assistants received 2-year deals.
