CARROLLTON, Ga. -- Daryl Dickey, the former Tennessee
quarterback who spent six seasons as Florida State's quarterback
coach, took over the West Georgia program Wednesday.
Dickey replaces Mike Ledford, who resigned in November. The
25-year-old coaching veteran, the son of former Tennessee and
Florida head coach Doug Dickey, was out of football this year after
his contract was not renewed at Florida State.
Dickey spent four seasons at Presbyterian, guiding the Blue Hose
to a 9-2 record in 2000, which was the school's best record since
1979. He spent two seasons as the offensive coordinator and
quarterback coach at Georgia Southern.
In 1985, Dickey led the Southeastern Conference in passing
efficiency while at Tennessee, and had stints with the San Diego
Chargers and the USFL's Memphis Showboats.
He inherits a team that finished 10th in the Gulf South
Conference and had an 2-9 record this season.
