Terrence Samuel was named Michigan State's new receivers coach, the school announced Friday.

Samuel, a former receiver at Purdue from 1991-94, replaces Don Treadwell, who also was the Spartans' offensive coordinator and left to take the head-coaching job at Miami (Ohio).

Samuel spent last season working on former Spartan Dan Enos' staff at Central Michigan. Enos had previously worked under Dantonio.

"Terrence did a great job during a chalkboard session with the offensive staff, and he did equally well in a teaching session with some of our current players," Dantonio said in a statement. "He went through an extension interview process.

"Terrence comes highly recommended by Dan Enos and many others, and his transition should be relatively smooth because Central Michigan uses some similar offensive concepts. He recruited in-state some last year for CMU, so he has already developed relationships with some Michigan high-school coaches."

Samuel said: "To have the opportunity to work with coach Dantonio is the primary reason that I accepted this position. (Enos) told me that coach Dantonio creates a remarkable working and teaching environment. Obviously, I'm also excited to be back in the Big Ten."

Before going to CMU, Samuel spent the previous two years coaching the receivers at North Dakota State. Samuel has 13 years of coaching experience.
