There is a big backlog of stuff to discuss. I couldn’t update Thursday because for technical reasons. I couldn’t update Friday because it was my son’s birthday, which meant a party on Saturday.
SMU has hired a new executive assistant AD. The interesting news is Mike Vaught is coming from Rice, which would not be that interesting except he has held that for just six months.
I find it odd that nobody has mentioned Vaught’s Career before Rice. Immediately before Rice, Vaught was athletic director of the Alamo Heights ISD in San Antonio. Before that, he was the AD at the Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tennessee.
Before becoming an AD Vaught was a football coach. Vaught was the offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator at Navy from 1995 2001. He was also the offensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator at Texas State. Vaught was an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Missouri State and a graduate assistant at Arkansas.
Bennett sees a bigger roll for Martin. Also, Bryan McCann is the only true freshman expected play this year; McCann plays wide receiver is getting some snaps in practice at Corner.
