Darrell Dickey is expected to be named Texas A&M’s offensive coordinator, sources told FootballScoop on Monday. The official announcement is expected within the next 24 hours.
Dickey spent the last six seasons at Memphis as offensive coordinator. He was originally a member of Justin Fuente’s staff and was retained by new head coach Mike Norvell. The Tigers won the AAC West Division this season and ranked fourth nationally in total offense (548.2 yards per game) and yards per play (7.46), and placed second in scoring at 47.7 points per game.
Dickey also owns significant experience in Texas. He was the head coach at North Texas from 1998-06, leading the Mean Green to four consecutive Sun Belt championships from 2001-04. Dickey broke into coaching as a graduate assistant at Texas A&M in 1985 and also deposited stints as the offensive coordinator at UTEP, SMU and Texas State.
At Texas A&M, Dickey will work with new head coach Jimbo Fisher to transform an offense led by true freshman quarterback Kellen Mond and redshirt freshman Nic Starkel. The 7-5 Aggies closed the year tied for 76th in total offense, 89th in yards per play and 43rd in scoring at 31.1 points per game.
