Tennessee State football coach Eddie George names his staff

New Tennessee State football coach Eddie George officially announced his staff Wednesday.

As already reported, George named former NFL coach Hue Jackson the Tigers’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach and Brandon Fisher, the son of former Titans coach Jeff Fisher, as defensive coordinator.

Jackson was the coach of the Oakland Raiders in 2011 and the Cleveland Browns from 2016-18. His most recent position was in 2018 with the Cincinnati Bengals as special assistant to coach Marvin Lewis.

Fisher, a former Christ Presbyterian Academy star, spent last season at Auburn as a defensive analyst and before that was the defensive coordinator at Southern Utah.

“I couldn’t be more excited to get started coaching our student-athletes with this staff of exceptional men,” George said. “These men are all great football coaches, but they are even better men. We really took our time to make sure each one of these coaches was the right fit for our program.”   

 The other coaches:

• Joe Bowden, linebackers, who spent the last four years at Missouri Baptist as defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. Bowden played linebacker for the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans from 1992-99.
