Ark. St. defensive coordinator Patterson resigns
Arkansas State defensive coordinator Keith Patterson has
resigned less than two months after being hired.
Head coach Gus Malzahn announced the resignation in a news
release Friday. Patterson had been hired as ASU defensive
coordinator on Jan. 4 – less than a month after Malzahn was hired
as head coach.
Malzahn said Patterson is leaving for a job at another FBS
program and that a search for his replacement is under way. Malzahn
did not disclose where Patterson is going.
Patterson spent last season as defensive coordinator and
linebackers’ coach at the University of Pittsburgh and served
briefly as interim head coach at Pittsburgh.
