Virginia Tech wide receivers coach Aaron Moorehead is making a lateral move to Texas A&M. The now former Hokies assistant will assume the same role as a member of the coaching staff Kevin Sumlin has at Texas A&M.
Texas A&M needed a new wide receivers coach after the man who previously held that position, David Beaty, moved on to accept a job as a head coach at Kansas. Moorehead, a former NFL star, will have some talent to work with at College Station. Josh Reynolds led the Aggies in receiving as a sophomore with 842 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014. The Aggies also have a dynamic freshman duo with Speedy Noil and Ricky Seals-Jones coming off encouraging debut seasons.
As noted by Andy Bitter of The Roanoke Times, Virginia Tech now has just one assistant staff member that joined the program during a coaching overhaul in 2013. That is offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler.
