The Jackson State football staff — at least on the offensive side — is coming together with a pair of interesting hires.
After naming John Hendrick its head coach and allowing him to clean out the offensive staff, the program is expected to name Ron Dickerson Jr. as its offensive coordinator and T.C. Taylor as quarterbacks coach, according to FootballScoop.
Dickerson heads to JSU from Morgan State where he was the school’s associate head coach and special teams coach.
Taylor is familiar to Jackson State. He was a one-time wide receiver and quarterback at Jackson State where he finished runner-up to then-Ole Miss quarterback Eli Manning for the 2001 Conerly Trophy, presented to Mississippi’s top college football player.
After a brief professional football career in the NFL and overseas, he worked his way up from Coahoma Community College in Mississippi to Texas Southern before landing at North Carolina Central. In his second season at NCCU as offensive coordinator, Taylor has orchestrated a group that is among the top-5 in the MEAC in points per game, total offense, rushing, and boasts the best red zone offense in the league, scoring at an 89.5 percent clip.
