Another FBS offensive coordinator joins Baylor staff

It's been a busy Monday for Dave Aranda's staff at Baylor continues into Tuesday. Jeff Grimes was been formally announced as the Bears' offensive coordinator, and Shawn Bell, a former BU quarterback himself, moved from tight ends to quarterbacks.

But that's not all.

On Tuesday Baylor announced Ryan Pugh will be the Bears' offensive line coach and Chansi Stuckey the team's wide receivers coach.

Pugh was most recently the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Troy and has an extensive history working under Grimes.

The pair first linked up at Auburn, where Grimes was the Tigers' offensive line coach and Pugh an All-SEC performer and a Rimington Trophy finalist for the nation's top center on the 2010 national championship team.

Pugh quickly moved into coaching as Grimes's GA at Auburn in 2012 and later worked under Grimes at Virginia Tech, LSU and BYU.

"I'm thrilled to add Chansi and his tremendous energy to our staff," Aranda said. "I am fired up to see the environment that he is going to create with our wide receivers. I look forward to all the possibilities of what he can bring to our program with his communication skills, his heart and his boundless energy. Having played the position in the NFL and having experience with the receivers at Clemson, he is going to be a truly great addition to our program."

Stuckey worked most recently in player development at Clemson, and was an offensive GA for the Tigers before that. He is a former All-ACC wide receiver at Clemson.
