Albany State football can breathe a short sigh of relief. The offseason has been one of uncertainty for the Golden Rams at some key positions.
At the top, an offensive coordinator and a starting quarterback were a top priority. Coach Mike White and the staff can check one concern off the list.
Albany State has found their quarterback in Grambling State transfer, Frank Rivers. The story was first reported by the Albany Herald.
Rivers, an incoming junior, appeared in 16 games during his freshman and sophomore season at Grambling State. However, D.J. Williams, the son of Grambling head coach Doug Williams, took over the starting role.
ASU Head Coach Mike White says Rivers was looking to start over with a fresh slate, adding that he's happy to have an experienced quarterback.
On the ASU offensive coordinator search, the search will not drag out too much longer. The Golden Rams expect to announce a new hire in the next week.
White says he has a coordinator in mind, and is waiting on the green light from the administration. As the Golden Rams move to within a month of fall practice, there are two other positions open on the division two football team's coaching staff.
The Golden Rams must replace offensive line coach, Lawrence Livingston and the defensive line coach, Bokowski Daniels. As of now, Coach White will be fulfilling the duty on the defensive line this season.
Albany State fall football practice opens August 4.
