Stony Brook (FCS - NY): Stony Brook is in search of a full-time video coordinator. See more at DFO Scoop.
Washington State: Special teams coach Eric Russell has been let go, and offensive QC Eric Mele has been promoted to a full-time assistant role.
Troy: Larry Blakeney stated this morning that he doesn't anticipate having any significant role in identifying the next head coach. He will, however, serve as a special assistant to the athletics director, AD John Hartwell announced. Hartwell said Troy will form an "advisory committee" of former players and business leaders, and would like to have a new coach in place by Dec. 15.
Syracuse: Scott Shafer has released a statement that quarterbacks coach Tim Lester will become his new offensive coordinator. George McDonald will now coach the receivers exclusively.
SMU: Mack Brown has reportedly been contacted by SMU representatives according to a report from his attorney Joe Jamail to the Austin American Statesman.
