Sources: Texas targeting ACC personnel director for same role

Texas is targeting Billy Glasscock as its director of player personnel, sources told FootballScoop on Saturday.

Glasscock currently works in the same role at NC State, a job he has held since 2017. He was Minnesota's director of recruiting operations prior to that, and broke into major college football as a recruiting operations assistant and assistant strength coach at Northern Illinois.

Prior to that, Glasscock held coaching posts at Arizona Western College and Joliet Junior College.

Glasscock would fill the role made vacant when the Texas administration nixed Steve Sarkisian's attempted hiring of South Carolina player personnel director Drew Hughes due to the ongoing investigation into possible recruiting impropriety at Tennessee, Hughes's previous employer. He has since taken a job in the Jacksonville Jaguars' personnel shop.

Sarkisian has worked to fill out Texas's personnel and operations department, with Glasscock representing the final major piece. He brought Jason Grooms from Vanderbilt to serve as chief of staff and hired Matt Smidebush as director of football administration. Inside Texas reported Friday that Texas is hiring Taylor Searels as director of on-campus recruiting and Bobby Brown as assistant director of player personnel. Searels worked with Grooms at Vanderbilt and Brown was a recruiting specialist at North Carolina.

Texas secured two 2022 commitments on Saturday, including one from Gardena, Calif., quarterback Maalik Murphy, a 5-star in the 247Sports composite rankings.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
