Arizona Wildcats football coach Jedd Fisch’s staff grew by one Wednesday, as Scott Spurrier officially announced he is joining the program as a special teams analyst.

Spurrier updated his Twitter profile to reflect his position on the Arizona staff and also tweeted out that he is “Excited to be part of the @ArizonaFootball staff. Great people, great football! This is going to be exciting!!! #itspersonal”

Spurrier is the son of legendary college football coach Steve Spurrier, who gave Fisch his start in the industry as a college student at Florida.

The younger Spurrier was most recently the offense quality control / tight end coach for the Dallas Renegades of the XFL. Before that, he served as offense quality control assistant for the South Florida Bulls and spent eight years on his father’s staff at South Carolina.

He played for the South Carolina program as a walk-on receiver as well.

It’s relevant to note that Arizona also has another coaching legend’s son on its staff in Brennan Carroll. The new UA offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach is the son of current Seattle Seahawks and former USC coach Pete Carroll.
