New Purdue coach Darrell Hazell (pictured) announced last week the additions of six assistants. It appears he’s found a seventh. reported Thursday that John Shoop, formerly the offensive coordinator at North Carolina and a position coach at multiple NFL clubs, has joined Hazell’s staff as the team’s OC. Tom Dienhart of the Big Ten Network confirmed the report, although nothing official has come from Purdue as of yet.

Shoop actually interviewed with the Tennessee Titans earlier this month, according to the Tennessean, and Shoop’s ties are mostly in the NFL. He’s coached on staffs at Oakland, Tampa Bay, Chicago and Carolina, most of the time as a quarterbacks coach. However, he did briefly serve as the OC for the Bears from 2001-03. Results were…mixed.

His stint at UNC as offensive coordinator lasted from 2007-11. He’s been out of coaching for the past year.

    UNC loses another Asst Coach. Their former Def Line Coach upgraded to South Carolina where the facilities are better, the players better, and the school is great. And he’ll be earning more money. The ACC is a basketball conference….not really noted for football.

    @ thegsmecocker

    Do you even read the articles or do you just comment on everything ignorantly. UNC didn’t lose another assistant. Good old Schoop has been out of football for a year.

    His last job was at UNC as OC…I realize he was out of football for the past year. Tell me Chicago Irish….who will answer for Declan? and Lizzie Seeburg? Don’t worry about “Good old Schoop”…worry about what “TD JESUS” is thinking of those two poor souls……ND Football is despicable.
