Mississippi State has filed a vacancy on their coaching staff.
With less than a week before the Bulldogs open spring practice, linebacker coach Tem Lukabu left the program to take a job with the Cincinnati Bengals. Head coach Joe Moorhead acted quickly to replace him, and MSU has confirmed that they’ve hired former Vanderbilt assistant Chris Marve.
Marve has been on the coaching staff at Vanderbilt since 2014, and for the past three seasons, he has served as the ILB coach. Along with his coaching experience in the SEC, Marve also played the position for the Commodores from 2008-2011 – earning All-SEC honors each season.
Hiring a new assistant is nothing new for Moorhead this offseason as Marve is the fifth new assistant that will be roaming the MSU sidelines in 2019.
The Bulldogs open spring practice on March 5th.
