Leave a comment

Baylor head coach Matt Rhule is filling out his coaching staff in Waco, and a few names have been officially added. Among the new official hires are offensive coordinator Matt Lubick and defensive coordinator Phil Snow.

Lubick will be leaving Ole Miss for the job shortly after taking the job in Oxford. Lubick had his departure from Ole Miss confirmed by Hugh Freeze earlier this week. Lubick was Oregon’s offensive cooridnator in 2016 under Mark Helfrich. It was unknown for sure whether or not he would be retained at Oregon under new head coach Willie Taggart before accepting the job at Ole Miss, and now at Baylor.

Snow was expected to make the move from Temple to Baylor with Rhule. Snow was Rhule’s defensive coordinator with the Owls and he coached one of the top defensive units in the American Athletic Conference.

Other names officially joining the staff at Baylor are Elijah Robinson, Jeff Nixon and George DeLeone. Robinson was on Rhule’s Temple staff as a defensive line coach and defensive run game coordinator. Nixon previously coached with Rhule as a part of the 2006 Temple coaching staff (when Rhule was an assistant under Al Golden) and returns to the college game after a few years jumping around the NFL, most recently with the San Francisco 49ers. DeLeone was also on Rhule’s staff at Temple.
