Heater named MU defensive coordinator
HUNTINGTON — Chuck Heater, the defensive coordinator at Temple for the past two seasons, accepted the same position at Marshall University.
Heater will also coach the secondary, Marshall head coach Doc Holliday said.
"Chuck is one of the most respected coaches in the nation and will bring with him a proven track record of success,” Holliday said. "He has helped win three national titles and I’m tremendously excited for him to join our staff.”
Heater, a 37-year veteran in the college coaching ranks, also served as the co-defensive coordinator at Florida in 2010 and assistant defensive coordinator in 2008 and 2009. He helped win two national titles during his six-year stint in Gainesville (where he coached alongside Holliday from 2005-07) and another in 1988 while serving as the secondary coach at Notre Dame.
