Millsaps College has announced the resignation of head football coach Isaac Carter, who has accepted the defensive coordinator position at the University of San Diego.
Carter, hired by the Majors in February 2020, compiled an overall record of 6-18 over three seasons in Jackson, including a 5-13 mark in Southern Athletic Association play. Carter returns to the Division I level for the first time in nearly two decades after serving as a defensive backs coach for Princeton from 2005-06.
Carter will be reunited with recently hired USD coach Brandon Moore. Moore and Carter previously spent time together at the Colorado School of Mines, where they helped guide the Orediggers to a conference championship in 2016. As Carter moved on from Mines to Mt. San Antonio College and then Millsaps, Moore stayed in Golden and eventually built his way up to head coach leading the team to the Division II national championship in 2022.
As for Millsaps, the Majors wasted no time announcing assistant head coach and offensive line coach Cory York as interim head coach. York joined the Millsaps coaching staff in 2019 under then-head coach Aaron Pelch. In four seasons, York has coached 34 All-SAA players, 16 SAA Players of the Week, and one D3football.com All-American.
Prior to being hired at Millsaps, York spent six seasons as a coach at his alma mater, Mississippi College. During his tenure with the Choctaws, York served as a special teams co-coordinator and worked with the defensive line, running backs, tight ends, and receivers.
The resignation of Carter is the latest shakeup for the SAA which has now seen head coaches at Millsaps, Birmingham-Southern, and Sewanee depart for other jobs this offseason.
