Official site update on Perry hire


Recommended Posts

DENTON, Texas - North Texas head coach Dan McCarney has announced the hiring of Tommy Perry as the new running backs coach and special teams coordinator. Perry, a Texas native, comes to North Texas after spending the last four seasons as an assistant at South Alabama.

"Out of the hundreds of applicants that we had for this position, Tommy clearly rose to the top as I went through this process," said McCarney. "He brings in a wealth of experience and success and has a great passion for the running back position."

In addition to the hiring of Perry, Coach McCarney has made two staff changes. Mike Grant will now coach the wide receivers and Nick Quartaro takes over as the tight ends coach.

While at South Alabama, Perry coached the running backs and was the special teams coordinator.

In 2012, the first season at the FBS level for South Alabama, Perry coached placekicker Michel Chapuseaux who set a school record for scoring with 84 points. Chapuseaux hit 20 field goals last season, the second most in Sun Belt Conference history. South Alabama had four running backs with over 200 yards rushing last season.

In 2011, Perry coached placekicker Jordan Means, who connected on 13-of-15 field goals and was South Alabama's first All-American after he was honored by the Beyond Sports College Network.
