There is a new coach in College State, as Mike Elko is coming back to be the head coach at Texas A&M. He was the defensive coordinator from 2018-21, but left to become the head coach at Duke.

During his two years at Duke, the Blue Devils posted a 16-9 record.

With Elko coming back to Texas A&M, there are obviously going to be changes made to the coaching staff. On Tuesday, it was announced that offensive line coach Steve Addazio, offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino and assistant Dameyune Craig would be not be retained at Texas A&M.

It didn’t take long for Petrino to find another job, as it was announced that Petrino is becoming the offensive coordinator at Arkansas.

Addazio has been a head coach multiple times. First, he was the coach at Temple in 2011-12, and then was at Boston College from 2013-19. From 2020-21, he was the head coach at Colorado State.

Craig starred at Auburn from 1994-1997, and has coached at numerous places across the country. He has been at Texas A&M since 2018.

There will be many more announcements the next few days on who Elko is going to be bringing to Texas A&M, so stay tuned to Saturday Down South for updated coverage.
