FootballScoop has reported that Ball State’s newly-hired defensive backs coach, Grady Brown, has left for Old Dominion to be the Monarchs’ co-defensive coordinator. Brown was hired to be a proven coach to help boost the trending Cardinal secondary, but he was also hired to be another solid recruiter in the state of Georgia. Before that, it was Chevis Jackson as the Cardinals’ DB coach. In his first full recruiting cycle for Ball State, he helped the team piece together the No. 4 signing class in the MAC and was named the MAC Recruiter of the Year by 247sports.com. Now, with Jackson gone to Kansas and Brown to ODU, head coach Mike Neu has to hire another DB coach with great ties to Georgia — a state that Neu wants get his athletes from.
