JSU Taps Ex-Vol Woods to Coach Wide Receivers

At a time when timing is critical, Jacksonville State's search for a receivers coach couldn't have timed out better. Gamecocks head coach Jack Crowe needed an assistant coach. Thomas Woods wanted to get back in college coaching. The match couldn't have been better.

Woods played at Tennessee from 1985 to 1989 and is the Vols' fifth all-time leading receiver (124 catches). He has previously coached at Appalachian State, Western Carolina and Ole Miss.

“We've hired a uniquely qualified individual,” Crowe said. “People will have to pardon my slang, but we may have gotten dumb lucky. ... As a player, he's distinguished, and this is a guy who coordinated the (Ole Miss) passing game with Eli Manning and broke all the records. I don't know how you can get much more qualified than that.
