Willie Totten, former Mississippi Valley State quarterback and one-time head coach, has accepted a position as quarterbacks coach at Alabama A&M, according to reports.
Totten is expected to join the staff of new head coach James Spady, who was hired by Alabama A&M on Dec. 30.
“That’s my route,” Totten told the Albany Herald. “I have been a head coach, and I know what it takes to be a head coach. I think that’s the route I am taking, and going back to Division I gives me an opportunity to really grow and learn more football.”
As head coach at MVSU for eight seasons, Totten complied a 31-57 record. He resigned following the 2009 season.
The 2005 College Football Hall of Fame inductee spent the 2013 season as the quarterbacks coach at Division II Albany State.
