Texas A&M will add another member to its football staff.
On Tuesday, ESPN’s Dusty Dvoracek reported that the Aggies are set to hire Jerry Schmidt as their new strength coach. Schmidt has served as the strength coach at Oklahoma since 1999, the same year former Sooners’ head coach Bob Stoops took over the program.
In Schmidt’s career, he’s worked for Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Florida and Oklahoma. In total, he’s earned five national championship rings.
This will mark the Aggies seventh coaching hire since Jimbo Fisher became the head coach in December.
