DURHAM, N.C. – North Carolina Central University third-year head football coach Jerry Mack has announced three assistant coaches to join the 2016 Eagles coaching staff.
Former NCCU quarterback Jordan Reid will coach the running backs after working as an offensive assistant under Mack the past two seasons.
“Coach Reid has done a great job serving as an assistant on the offensive side of the ball, and will now be taking over the running backs on a full-time basis,” Mack said. “His experience with our offense and his help developing our offensive unit have been a critical part of us being back-to-back MEAC champions.”
Jermaine Gales is the new wide receivers coach with 13 years of coaching experience, including stops at Mars Hill University, Saint Augustine’s University and his alma-mater Southern Arkansas University.
“Coach Gales brings an extensive knowledge to our game-planning and our development of the wide receiver position,” said Mack.
Chris Schultz is now NCCU’s special teams coordinator and a defensive assistant with coaching experience at Florida International University, Catawba College, Kentucky Christian University and Bluefield College.
“Coach Schultz has vast experience working at all levels of college football, and will allow us to focus more in-depth on preparation for our special teams,” Mack said.
In addition, former NCCU quarterback Quinn Billerman is now an offensive assistant and recent NCCU video coordinator Bobby Turner is now a defensive assistant.
