Jimbo Fisher makes assignment changes on offensive staff
Jimbo Fisher decided to give his offensive coaching staff a little bit of a makeover.
James Coley has moved from tight ends coach to wide receivers coach. Dameyune Craig shifts to quarterbacks coach from wide receivers coach and Darrell Dickey moves to tight ends coach after coaching quarterbacks.
Billy Liucci from TexAgs.com is credited with noticing the internal shuffling of coaches first:
Very interesting offensive shake-up at A&M practice today, where James Coley was working with the WRs, Dameyune Craig QBs and Darrell Dickey the TEs.

Fisher told reporters on Sunday that each coach has experience coaching in their new positions (via On3 Sports):
“They’ve all done it before,” Fisher said. “Every one of them has coached them positions before. The dynamic of how we do things, and how we want to go.”
Coley coached tight ends for Fisher at Florida State from 2008-12 and coached quarterbacks at Miami, where he was also the offensive coordinator from 2013-15. He later coached wide receivers and quarterbacks at Georgia from 2016-19. It’s assumed he’ll keep his title at co-offensive coordinator.
Craig coached quarterbacks for Fisher at Florida State from 2010-12 and wide receivers at Auburn (2013-15) and LSU (2016).
Dickey has worked as a position coach at tight end, running back and quarterback during his 37-year coaching career. It’s assumed he will keep his offensive coordinator title as this switch is made.
Aggie fans is this coaching switch up a big deal or no deal?
