Good move for Paul. I thought he might end up on our staff next year if a current defensive assistant moved on.

Yep. He definitely would have. He played QB there so it's a good move for him.

And the Tim Beckman coaching tree has officially began...

Congratulations to Coach Nichols --- Seems like a good person --- Always nice to see a former standout player return to their alma mater as a head coach. I wish him much success!

Davidson Names Alum Paul Nichols Head Football Coach

Nichols most recently served as the director of player personnel at Illinois last season. In that position, he coordinated on-campus recruiting efforts and relations with high school coaches, among other duties, for head coach Tim Beckman and the Fighting Illini staff.

Chad Creamer will be Nichols DC at Davidson. He also worked player personnel with Nichols here.
