WSU names JaMarcus Shephard inside receivers coach
JaMarcus Shephard has been hired by Washington State to join Mike Leach’s coaching staff as inside receivers coach. He replaces David Yost, who left earlier this month to become Oregon’s quarterbacks coach after three seasons with WSU.
“JaMarcus is a tremendous coach and will fit nicely within our program,” Leach said in a press release Monday. “He has great passion for coaching and recruiting, is familiar with how we attack from an offensive standpoint, and believes strongly in not only improving every day on the field but also in the classroom.”
Shephard, 33, spent the last two seasons as Western Kentucky’s receivers coach. The Hilltoppers averaged 372.2 passing yards per game in 2015, which ranked fourth in the country.
