Clint Trickett starts coaching career at East Mississippi CC
Per Fox Sports, former West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett is set to begin his coaching career at East Mississippi Community College.
Former West Virginia quarterback Clint Trickett isn't wasting any time kickstarting his coaching career.
Forced to retire from playing football before the Mountaineers' 2014 bowl game due to a series of concussions, Trickett will become the new quarterbacks coach at East Mississippi Community College, Fox Sports reported Tuesday. Trickett confirmed the move via Twitter:
Proud to officially be the QB coach at East Mississippi CC! Home of the 2011, 2013, & 2014 JUCO National Champions! Lets get to work #PR1DE— Clint Trickett (@CJTrickett9) March 4, 2015
Having already graduated from Florida State before moving to WVU, Trickett said upon his retirement he intended to move immediately into coaching.
The profession seems to run in the family. Trickett's father, Rick Trickett, is a member of Jimbo Fisher's staff with the Seminoles and is one of college football's most widely-respected offensive line coaches; Trickett's brother, Travis Trickett, is the current offensive coordinator at FCS Samford.
Trickett threw for 3,285 yards in his final season of eligibility to lead the Mountaineers back to the postseason after a one-season absence, despite suffering what he told the media was a series of five concussions in a 14-month span.
