The Mississippi State Bulldogs now have a completed coaching staff, following this week’s hiring of a special teams coordinator.

In a statement released by the school, Moorhead said he’s excited to have an assistant with so much experience on college football’s biggest stages:

“Scott is one of the most experienced special teams coaches in the country,” Moorhead said. “He is a terrific recruiter, and he is going to be a big asset to our staff. Having coached in four national championship games and been a part of several conference championships, he understands what it takes to build a championship program.”
