James Coley: Hurricanes Just Stole the Seminoles' Offensive Coordinator
Coley is an FSU grad, but the new job is still a homecoming for him. He's a Miami native and graduate of Miami Senior High. He got his start as an OC at Norland, and has made stops as an offensive assistant with the Dolphins. He also spent a single season as the offensive coordinator at FIU. The move will reunite him with Mario Cristobal.
Nabbing the OC from the ACC's top offensive team may sound great, but is a bit risky considering Coley was OC on paper only. Head Coach Jimbo Fisher still calls plays for FSU. The good news though is that Coley as named by ESPN as the best recruiter in the ACC.
Earlier reports indicated Coley will also receive a pay raise. He received $390,000 a year at FSU, but will collect $500k at Miami.
Coley is also a prolific author of short but quite excited Tweets.
