Former Ole Miss player and analyst Micheal Spurlock has reportedly landed his first on-field coaching position in the FBS ranks. Spurlock, 40, will be the next wide receivers coach at Western Kentucky.

The news comes from ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

Spurlock played multiple positions during his Ole Miss career (2001-05). In the NFL, he caught on as a return specialist and receiver. Spurlock bounced around the league from 2006-to-2014.

In 2015, Spurlock got into coaching at the high school level. His first FBS gig came in 2017 at UTSA as a quality control assistant who worked with special teams and linebackers. For 2 seasons (2018-19), Spurlock was on staff as wide receivers coach and special teams coordinator for FCS program Southeastern Louisiana.

Spurlock returned to Ole Miss in 2020, joining Lane Kiffin’s staff as a senior analyst. He held the position for 2 seasons before joining the Green Bay Packers as a special teams quality control coach.
