Luke Huard will join Trent Miles’ staff at Georgia State.
Huard is currently the offensive coordinator at Illinois State. Miles hasn’t decided which position group Huard will coach on the offensive side of the ball. He is expected to arrive next week. The Redbirds lost 51-35 to Eastern Washington in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs.
With Huard calling the plays, Illinois State averaged 30.2 points and 396.8 yards per game this season. They averaged 27.9 points and 383 yards in 2011 and 389 yards in 2010, all with Huard as offensive coordinator.
Miles’ Indiana State teams were in the same conference (Missouri Valley) as Illinois State.
Huard joined Illinois State in 2009 as quarterbacks coach and helped true freshman Matt Brown pass for almost 2,400 yards. Brown passed for 2,665 yards as a sophomore, 2,187 yards as a junior and 3,370 yards this year.
Huard graduated from North Carolina 2002. Two of his brothers, Damon and Brock, were quarterbacks at Washington.
He will join Jeff Jagodzinski, who was hired as offensive coordinator earlier this week, and Harold Etheridge, who came with Miles from Indiana State and who will coach the offensive line.
