Morgan State offensive coordinator Fred Farrier is expected to be the program’s new head coach, according to a source.
This past season was Farrier’s second in his position at Morgan State. He succeeds former coach Lee Hull, who left Monday to become wide receivers coach for the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.
In Farrier’s first season at Morgan State, he helped lead the Bears to the FCS playoffs, their first NCAA Division I playoff berth in school history. That season, his offense set 35 new statistical records.
Farrier was the passing game coordinator at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute from 2012–13 and Kentucky State’s coach from ’05–09, compiling a 19–25 record. He was Shaw’s associate head coach and offensive coordinator in ’04 after serving as the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator at Tennessee Tech for three seasons.
Farrier coached receivers and was recruiting coordinator at Saginaw Valley State in 2000 following two seasons as a graduate assistant at Michigan State under then-coach Nick Saban.
Prior to coaching, Farrier was a senior accountant for three-and-one-half years with Price Waterhouse L.L.P. in Cleveland. A Cleveland Heights, Ohio, native, he was a wide receiver at Holy Cross.
Morgan State had 4–6 record this past season.
