With the Willie Simmons coaching era officially underway at Florida A&M, it appears that another familiar name is making a move to Tallahassee as well.

HBCU Sports has independently confirmed that former Alabama A&M head coach James Spady will be joining the staff in a role that has yet to be determined.


The news was first reported by Football Scoop.

Florida A&M: Source tells FootballScoop former Alabama A&M head coach James Spady will join Willie Simmons’ staff at Florida A&M. Although we hear Spady will have the associate head coach title, actual coaching role seems on hold pending finalization of staff hires.
