Longtime Michigan State assistant reportedly lands job at Syracuse
Terry Samuel will be the new wide receivers coach at Syracuse. If that name sounds familiar, Samuel spent nearly a decade with Michigan State and played collegiately at Purdue.
Samuel spent last season at UNLV as their wide receivers coach and the pass game coordinator. Prior to that, he had spent the previous nine seasons at Michigan State as their wide receivers coach.
He was a four-year letter winner at Purdue from 1991-94 as a wide receiver.
The news of Samuel heading to Syracuse was first reported by Syracuse.com.
The position that Samuel currently occupies was vacated by the departure of Justin Lustig to Vanderbilt. Lustig, who served as both special teams coordinator and wide receiver coach with the Orange since 2018, had been with the program for a total of four years.
At Purdue, Samuel earned a reputation as a solid kick returner with a career average of 19.5 yards on kickoffs. He had 17 career catches for 268 receiving yards and a touchdown during his four seasons with the Boilermakers.
