During the 2013 season, Jake Spavital served as the Texas A&M Aggies’ co-Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks’ coach after the man who use to hold the Offensive Coordinator title, Kliff Kingsbury, left the become the head coach of the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
The other co-Offensive coordinator was Clarence McKinney. Although he will no longer have that title, he will stay on the staff as Running Backs’ coach.
According to Kate Hairopoulos or the Dallas Morning News, Spavital has been promoted to Offensive Coordinator and will now call the Aggies’ plays. Spavital’s first time calling plays with the Aggies will be in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on December 31 when they take on the Duke Blue Devils.
Before joining the Aggies’ staff in 2013, Spavital was the Quarterbacks’ coach for the West Virginia Mountaineers from 2011-2012, a G.A. with the Oklahoma State Cowboys in 2010 and with the Houston Cougars in 2009 under current Aggies’ head coach Kevin Sumlin.
Many pundits expected Spavital to be courted by schools who are in the market for a new Offensive Coordinator (Chris Houston of College Football Talk cites the Florida Gators as a team that could have made a run at Spavital), so the Aggies decided to lock him up.
