Mizzou set to hire offensive assistant with SEC experience, per reports
Missouri is set to hire an offensive assistant who is viewed as an excellent recruiter.
Bruce Feldman of The Athletic reported that Texas State offensive coordinator Jacob Peeler has worked with some terrific wide receivers and due to join Eli Drinkwitz’ staff.
Peeler finished his second season as the offensive coordinator at Texas State after he served one season as the co-offensive coordinator and 3 years coaching the wide receivers at Mississippi.
SEC fans may remember his “Nasty Wide Outs” mantra that he’d had with him at Ole Miss and Cal. Peeler served 4 seasons on the staff at Cal before Ole Miss. He was a graduate assistant in 2013-14 before he was promoted to assistant coach for inside receivers in 2015. From 2009-12, Peeler coached at Louisiana Tech, his alma mater where he played along the offensive line in 2005-06. Peeler earned a master’s degree in kinesiology in 2008 at Mississippi State after he received his bachelor’s degree in education in 2007 at Louisiana Tech.
At Cal and Ole Miss, he coached some well-known wide receivers who played in the SEC in A.J. Brown, D.K. Metcalf and Demetris Robertson.
Peeler’s Texas State offense ranked No. 105 in yards per game (341.2) and No. 101 in points per game (23.1) this past season.
