Cornerbacks coach position remains vacant

In addition to offseason preparation that includes player recruiting and game planning, football head coach Gary Patterson now has the task of filling a coaching vacancy.

Mark Cohen, athletics media relations director, confirmed Friday that TCU cornerbacks coach Charles McMillian has taken a position with Texas A&M.

McMillian, who has been TCU’s cornerbacks coach since 2004, will be A&M’s defensive backs coach.

Cohen said the team is already looking for a replacement and has several prospects.

Patterson has no specific date in which he plans to have a coach hired, Cohen said.

The Frogs passing defense ranked 45th in the nation last season, allowing 220.2 yards per game.

McMillian coached All-Mountain West Conference players Drew Coleman and Quincy Butler in 2005.
