Texas A&M is hiring Memphis' Darrell Dickey as offensive coordinator. Dickey, 58, spent this past season as Memphis' OC -- his second stint in the position -- and also held the coordinator title at Texas State, New Mexico, Utah State and SMU. He went 42-64 in nine seasons as North Texas' head coach and returns to the SEC for the first time since 1993, when he coached LSU's tight ends.

Mike Norvell, who had been a candidate for Arkansas' coaching vacancy and had been discussed for openings at both Florida and Ole Miss, has signed a contract extension to stay at Memphis.

I just spoke with Memphis AD Tom Bowen, who is understandably thrilled about the new contract extension signed today with coach Mike Norvell, who is 18-7 in two seasons. The details haven't been released yet, but Memphis has been working on the agreement since September, anticipating that several SEC schools would pursue Norvell.
