Report: Texas staffer top candidate for assistant coaching job with Rams

Publish date:

One of Steve Sarkisian's key off-field guys could be on the move, according to a report.

Last night, Anwar Richardson shares that Longhorns director of recruiting Brandon Harris is the top candidate to join the Rams as an assistant quarterbacks coach. Harris was expected to also maintain an analyst-type role for the program working with the quarterbacks., according to multiple reports.

Richardson adds that Harris interviewed well and the Rams are waiting on his decision.

Harris was named to his post by Steve Sarkisian about two weeks ago after Bryan Carrington left to join the USC staff, where Carrington will transition from a key recruiting role to an offensive analyst position.

Harris started his college career as a quarterback at LSU before finishing at North Carolina after a high school career that ranked him a top-100 prospect and a top dual-threat quarterback prospect in the 2014 recruiting class.

After his playing days, Harris took a job as an offensive analyst on Tom Herman's Texas staff in the spring of 2019 and he spent the last two seasons helping on the offensive side of the ball.
