As head coaches around the country continue to fill gaps in their staffs ahead of the start of spring practice, Wake Forest’s Jim Grobe is the latest to plug a coaching hole.
Grobe announced Monday that Taylor Stubblefield (no relation) has been hired to oversee the Demon Deacon wide receivers. Stubblefield replaces Lonnie Galloway, who left after two seasons at Wake last month to return to West Virginia.
Stubblefield spent last season as receivers coach at New Mexico. Prior to that, he served as receivers coach at Central Michigan (2011), Illinois State (2009-10), Eastern Michigan (2008) and Central Washington (2007).
Stubblefield was an All-American wide receiver at Purdue a decade ago, leaving the Boilermakers in 2004 with a then-NCAA record of 316 career receptions. He is now the third-leading pass catcher in FBS history.
