Baylor football director of player personnel Evan Cooper has been promoted as the team’s 10th assistant coach.
Cooper has been on Matt Rhule’s staff for four years, including the last two as the director of player personnel for Temple and Baylor. His role as a Baylor assistant hasn’t yet been announced.
The NCAA approved coaching staffs adding a 10th assistant last year, and the rule went into effect on Wednesday.
“He has been instrumental in coordinating our recruiting efforts since coming with us to Baylor last year,” Rhule said. “We have signed 47 players in the last two years and he has played a large part in that. The opportunity for him to increase his presence on our staff is tremendous.”
