Kragthorpe replaced by Walters on Texas A&M staff

BY foxsports • July 26, 2010

Former Louisville coach Steve Kragthorpe is resigning as receivers coach at Texas A&M to tend to family medical issues, and former NFL player Troy Walters is taking his place.

Kragthorpe was hired in February after the Cardinals fired him following a 4-8 record in his third season. He was the head coach at Tulsa from 2003-06.

Walters played for Minnesota, Indianapolis, Arizona and Detroit during an eight-year NFL career. He was the 1999 Biletnikoff Award winner as the nation's best collegiate receiver at Stanford.

Walters was the offensive coordinator at Indiana State last year after he failed to make an NFL team in 2008. He played high school football in College Station.
