Elliott rejoins Bobcat coaching staff

Texas State Football

After spending a season at Mississippi State, Brett Elliott returns to Texas State’s coaching staff as the quarterbacks coach, the Bobcats announced Tuesday. 

Elliott was Texas State co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach during head coach Everett Withers first season with the Bobcats in 2016. 

Elliott joined Withers’ original Texas State coaching staff after he was a co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at James Madison in 2015 under Withers. 

During Elliott’s previous stint with the Bobcats, quarterback Tyler Jones tied a school record with 418 passing yards against Ohio on Sept. 3, 2016. Jones also added five touchdowns in the triple-overtime win over Ohio. He broke the record for most passing yards in a game and touchdowns passes in a game with 475 yards and five touchdowns in Texas State’s win over Incarnate Word. Jones set a school record for most completions in a game with 40. 

During his tenure with Mississippi State, he called the plays in its win over Louisville in the TaxSlayer Bowl. The Bulldogs finished with a 9-4 record. 

Elliott becomes the Bobcats’ quarterbacks coach after co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Parker Fleming took a job with Ohio State to become a special teams quality control coach with the Buckeyes. 

Texas State is set to begin spring practice on March 20 and it holds its annual spring game on April 14 at 3 p.m. inside Bobcat Stadium.
