Jeff Brohm is in the market for a new cornerbacks coach, according to a report from Gold and Black Illustrated.
According to the report, cornerbacks coach Derrick Jackson is leaving Purdue to become the defensive coordinator at Northern Illinois. An official announcement is expected to come sometime on Monday.
Jackson previously coached at Northern Illinois in 2005. He’s also had stops at Michigan State, Syracuse, Rice, Akron and Wake Forest. Thomas Hammock was recently named the new head coach at Northern Illinois.
Jackson was an original member of Brohm’s staff at Purdue, and becomes the second to leave since arriving in West Lafayette. Former special teams and tight ends coach Tony Levine left following the 2017 season.
In addition to Jackson’s defensive knowledge, he’ll be expected to dominate the recruiting trail for the Huskies.
