One of the inevitable hirings appears to have occurred with Dave Nichol being the Inside Wide Receivers coach at Mississippi State. Nichol joins Steve Spurrier Jr. as the two wide receiver coaches Mike Leach will have on his staff. The emphasis on wide receivers in the air raid offense is huge and having two coaches is something Mike Leach has done since his time at Texas Tech. The Inside WR coach will replace the TE coach, as Mike Leach does not use Tight Ends in his offense.
