The Clewiston, Fla., native is no stranger in recruiting the Sunshine State, and that goes back to when he was recruited by Holliday. His final choice of schools was between Virginia Tech and West Virginia, which high school rival JuJuan Seider picked.
Now he is on Seider's team, and counts a good relationship with another ex-Hokie, defensive line coach J.C. Price.
"Anthony is an excellent addition to our staff," Holliday said. "He brings us a wealth of experience, not only as a coach but also a scholar-athlete who competed at the highest level."
Midget got into coaching in 2002 at Lake Worth (Fla.) High School and then spent the 2007 season as a graduate assistant at Virginia Tech before taking his first full-time job at Georgia State.
And if you're wondering, Midget isn't that small, at least for a former cornerback. He said he is an even 6-foot, but played at 5-11 in college.
"For some reason, I've grown a little since I stopped playing," he said.
