For his first season at Mississippi State, Mike Leach’s staff looks to have a noticeable Washington State-flavor to it. All of WSU’s on-field offensive position coaches have followed Leach to MSU. Those position coaches figure to have some familiar off-field help as well.

Carson Cramer shared that this will be his first weekend in Starkville. Cramer was an offensive quality control assistant for Leach last season.

According to his WSU bio, Cramer spent the 2018 season at Kansas in a quality control position, working with the offensive line and tight ends while also coordinating the defensive scout team. It states that Cramer helped develop a second-team All-Big-12 offensive lineman in Hakeem Adeniji and saw the Jayhawks improve their rushing offense by nearly 60 yards-per-game from the 2017 season. He also as six seasons of experience at Oklahoma State, serving as a student assistant from 2012-16 and then as an offensive graduate assistant 2016-17.
