Michigan State football has hired private pass rush trainer Brandon Jordan to join the MSU football defensive staff.

Jordan has spent the past few years training superstar NFL defensive ends such as the Rams' Von Miller, the Steelers' T.J. Watt and the Cardinals' Chandler Jones but will now join the college coaching ranks as an assistant coach working with MSU’s defensive ends.

Jordan will fill the vacancy left by former defensive backs coach Tavares Tillman, who took the same position at his alma mater, Georgia Tech. He will be expected to use his expertise and training to help bolster MSU’s pass rush, which generated 41 sacks last season, tied for fourth-best in the country.

Jordan’s previous coaching experience came as a defensive line coach at Austin Peay State University.

Michigan State has filled each of its coaching vacancies now. MSU hired Effrem Reed to be the new running backs coach after William Peagler left to take the same position at Florida.
