Memphis Tigers offensive coordinator Darrell Dickey leaving for job at Texas A&M

Football Scoop first reported the hire, and Billy Liucci confirmed the news that Dickey will serve as Fisher's offensive coordinator and also coach the Aggie quarterbacks.

Jimbo Fisher is now the coach at Texas A&M and he's got the massive contract to prove it. Chip Long left the school following Norvell's first season with the Tigers to become the offensive coordinator at Notre Dame.

Dickey will actually make a return to College Station, where he was a graduate assistant in 1985.

The Commercial Appeal's Mark Giannotto shared the same report and cited a Memphis source for the information. "We will explore all options in finding the right fit for our staff to continue to lead our great group of players". In the early 1990s, he coached tight ends at LSU and quarterbacks and running backs at Mississippi State. Dickey did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment on his departure.

"I'm thankful for all the work that Darrell has put in throughout his years at the University of Memphis", Tigers head coach Mike Norvell said. He will bring a lot of experience within the state of Texas as well, having been the head coach at North Texas from 1998-2006. He also served as interim head coach when Fuente departed for Virginia Tech. That doesn't sit well with current San Diego State coach Rocky Long.

A $10,000 bonus isn't close to the same thing as a $7.5 million coaching salary.
