Marshall football head coach Doc Holliday officially announced Monday that Chuck Heater, Temple's defensive coordinator for the past two seasons, has accepted the same position at MU.
Heater also will coach the secondary, according to Holliday.
"Chuck is one of the most respected coaches in the nation and will bring with him a proven track record of success," Holliday said via a school release. "He has helped win three national titles and I'm tremendously excited for him to join our staff."
Heater, a 37-year veteran in the college coaching ranks, also served as the co-defensive coordinator at Florida in 2010 and assistant defensive coordinator in 2008 and 2009. He helped win two national titles during his six-year stint in Gainesville (where he coached alongside Holliday from 2005-07) and another in 1988 while serving as the secondary coach at Notre Dame.
