Liberty is set to hire Jeremy Garrett as the Flames’ new defensive line coach, sources say. Garrett will come to the Flames from the NFL where he is currently an assistant defensive line coach for the Cleveland Browns.
With this move, Josh Aldridge is likely to move to linebackers coach as he also takes on the role as Co-Defensive Coordinator alongside safeties coach Jack Curtis. These moves follow the departure of defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Scott Symons took the same position at SMU. Symons took cornerback coach Rickey Hunley with him.
Garrett has spent the past two seasons with the Browns as an assistant defensive line coach. Prior to his time in the NFL, Garrett was a defensive quality control coach in 2019 at Vanderbilt. He spent a number of years in the high school ranks, first with Southaven High School and then Ensworth High School.
Garrett played his college ball at Ole Miss from 2005-2007 where he was recruited and coached by Liberty head coach Hugh Freeze.
