Rhett Lashlee is building his initial staff at SMU, and the Mustangs’ head coach looks to have settled on one of Missouri’s assistants as his offensive coordinator.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel, Casey Woods, the Tigers’ tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator, is set to join the program. Woods is completing his 2nd season in Columbia.

Woods coached alongside Mizzou head coach Eli Drinwitz and Lashlee at Arkansas State when the 3 were part of Gus Malzahn’s staff. He eventually made his way to Drinkwitz’s staff when the latter was hired at Mizzou prior to the 2020 season. Lashlee and Woods were also on the Auburn staff together in 2009 and 2010.

SMU hired Lashlee on Tuesday to replace Sonny Dykes, who departed for TCU. Lashlee spent 2 years as the offensive coordinator at Miami.
