Jimbo Fisher has made one of the first critical hires of his tenure at Texas A&M.
According to a report from Zach Barnett of Football Scoop, Texas A&M is expected to announce Darrell Dickey as its offensive coordinator within 24 hours.
UPDATE: Memphis has confirmed that Dickey is on his way to the Aggies, according to Mark Giannotto of the Commercial Appeal.
“I’m thankful for all the work that Darrell has put in throughout his years at the University of Memphis,” Tigers head coach Mike Norvell said. “He has represented our university in a first class manner and we’re excited for him and Tori (his wife) with the opportunity to return to his home state of Texas at Texas A&M.”
Dickey has been at Memphis for the last six seasons, helping to lead one of the most explosive and high-scoring offenses in the nation. In 2017, the Tigers ranked fourth in the country in total offense and yards per play and second in scoring at 47.7 points per game.
Dickey will actually make a return to College Station, where he was a graduate assistant in 1985. He will bring a lot of experience within the state of Texas as well, having been the head coach at North Texas from 1998-2006.
