Steve Sarkisian won’t be on the job as Texas’s new head coach until this time next week, but his offensive staff is already coming together.
Sources tell FootballScoop that AJ Milwee is set to come aboard as quarterbacks coach. Milwee is the former Akron offensive coordinator (at 30 years old, he was the second-youngest FBS coordinator at the time of his promotion) who just last week agreed to become the offensive coordinator at Arkansas State.
Milwee spent two years between Akron and Arkansas State as an offensive analyst at Alabama, and is expected to operate hand-in-glove with Sarkisian. While Sarkisian is anticipated to set the offense’s direction and call plays on game day, Milwee will assist Sarkisian in quarterback development and manage the day-to-day aspects of the position.
With Milwee set to come aboard, the new-look Texas offensive staff is set to look like this, according to FootballScoop sources and media reports:
Kyle Flood: Offensive coordinator/offensive line
AJ Milwee: Quarterbacks
Stan Drayton: Running backs
Holmon Wiggins: Wide receivers
The above staff leaves open a tight ends position, which could potentially be filled by Alabama tight ends coach/special teams coordinator Jeff Banks. Update: Sources tell FootballScoop Banks is expected to remain at Alabama.
