Michigan State has reportedly found its replacement at running backs coach. A familiar face is expected to return to East Lansing.

Adam Rittenberg of ESPN is reporting that Michigan State is expected to hire Effrem Reed to be the running backs coach. He will replace William Peagler, who was hired away to join Billy Napier’s staff at Florida.

Reed was an offensive analyst at Michigan State for the past two seasons. He was hired at Georgia Southern to be the running backs coach but will be returning to the Spartans staff before the calendar turns to 2022.

Prior to arriving at Michigan State, Reed spent two seasons at Louisiana. He started as the director of player engagement in 2018 and was a graduate assistant for the Ragin’ Cajuns in 2019.

Reed joined Mel Tucker’s staff at Michigan State in 2020.
