“Andy is a great get for us,” Barlow said. “He has a lot of experience and is a great communicator. He has a great passion for the game and I’m really excited to get him on the field and coach our receivers.”
With the hiring of Follett, Shannon Harris moves from receivers coach to quarterback coach, and Antonio Bradford will coach the offensive line/tight ends. Defensively, Dominique Stevenson moves from coaching safeties to linebackers.
Follett brings nearly 15 years of collegiate coaching experience to Alabama State, 12 of those coaching receivers. Last season, he was the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Millsaps College, where the offense set several single game school records, while averaging nearly 36 points per game and ranked in the top five in school history in total offense.
Prior to Millsaps, Follett spent four seasons at Western Carolina (2008-11), the first three as receiver coach/recruiting coordinator and in 2011 as co-offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. Follett was the wide receivers/running backs coach at Missouri State (2004-07), where the offense set a school record for most points in a season (399). He began his coaching career at the University of Nebraska-Kearney (1999-2003) as receivers coach.
