Jackie Shipp Lands Job In The Dessert

Former Oklahoma defensive line coach Jackie Shipp has landed on his feet after being let go at OU less than two weeks ago.

Shipp is joining former Tulsa coach Todd Graham as the d-line coach at Arizona State.

"I am thrilled to announce the hire of veteran coach Jackie Shipp to my staff at Arizona State," says Graham. "I could not have found a candidate who was a better fit for what we need at this time. Jackie is one of the best defensive line coaches in college football and our linemen will benefit from his leadership and mentoring. We just became a better football program with the appointment of Jackie Shipp. He's a top-flight recruiter with contacts in the states of Oklahoma, Texas and California. He will recruit all areas for us with special emphasis on the state of California."

Shipp was the defensive line coach in Norman for 14-seasons.
