QB coach Billy Napier reportedly leaving Colorado State for Florida State

Colorado State could be losing quarterback coach Billy Napier to Florida State.

Shakin the Southland

The coaching carousel never seems to end in the off season, and the lastet move has Colorado State losing quarterback coach Billy Napier to Florida State, according to Tomahawk Nation. Napier is expected to take over either the vacant quarterbacks coach, or coach the tight ends.

Napier was hired by Colorado State one year ago to coach the quarterbacks by Jim McElwain, the two coached together at Alabama where Napier was the offensive quality control assistant. For what he had to deal with the season with injuries at the quarterback spot, he did a solid job.

Taking a job in the ACC makes sense since Napier coached at Clemson from 2006-10 where he held various positions before being named offensive coordinator for the 2009-10 seasons; he was let go after that 2010 season due to report friction between Napier and head coach Dabo Swinney.

This is a big loss for Colorado State -- while a big gain for Florida State -- due to Napier's reputation of being a great recruiter, and it can be universally agreed upon that Colorado State needs better players.

As the recruiting coordinator for Clemson he helped rope in the No. 2 class in 2008. He also was part of a pair of classes which were ranked in the top-25.
