Gill’s staff is stocked with coaches who aren’t strangers to Big 12 schools, es­pe­cially in Texas, which won’t hurt re­cruit­ing.

Of­fen­sive line coach J.B. Grimes was an as­sis­tant at Texas A&M from 1998-2002. Of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Chuck Long was at Ok­la­homa from 1999-2005. Reg­gie Mitchell (run­ning backs, re­cruit­ing co­or­di­na­tor), was at Kansas from 1988-96.

Also, Vic Shealy (cor­ner­backs) was a grad as­sis­tant at Bay­lor in 1984-85. Carl Tor­bush (de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor) held the same post at A&M from 2003-2005.

Buddy Wy­att (de­fen­sive line) had two stints at A&M, 2000-02 and 2008-09. And Dar­rell Wy­att (co-of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor, re­ceivers), has coached at Bay­lor (1996), Kansas (1997-2000), Ok­la­homa State (2001) and Ok­la­homa (200205).
