Missouri tight ends coach Joe Jon Finley will leave Missouri to take on the same position for Jimbo Fisher and the Texas A&M Aggies, as reported by Billy Liucci Monday.
Per sources: Missouri tight ends coach Joe Jon Finley to accept the same position on Jimbo Fisher's A&M staff— Billy Liucci (@billyliucci) December 3, 2018
Finley won’t be on the sidelines for the Tigers’ New Years’ Eve matchup with Oklahoma State in the Liberty Bowl, as he will immediately fill in for Tim Brewster, who will join Mack Brown’s staff at North Carolina.
Offensive analyst Garrick McGee will take on Finley’s role in his absence for the remainder of the season.
This is a big loss for Barry Odom’s coaching staff, as the tight end position has been one of Missouri’s strongest for years with players by the likes of Sean Culkin, Albert Okwuegbunam and Kendall Blanton.
