Former Tennessee offensive line coach Don Mahoney has accepted the same position at East Carolina, according to College Football Talk.
Mahoney worked with the Vols under former head coach Butch Jones from 2013-16 and spent last season with a Div. II program in West Virginia.
“Don’s wealth of experience and expertise is synonymous with a foundation we need to have in place on the offensive side of the ball here,” a statement from head coach Scottie Montgomery said. “His background features a strong association of development and depth, two qualities which are crucial to the growth, balance and success of our unit.”
Mahoney had previously worked as an offensive line coach at Cincinnati (2010-12), Central Michigan (2007-09) and Tulane (1999-2006).
He began his career working as a graduate assistant with the Chippewas from 1993-94, before being promoted to tight ends coach in 1995.
