East Tennessee State hires Randy Sanders as football coach
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) — East Tennessee State hired Florida State assistant Randy Sanders as football coach Sunday.
Sanders replaces Carl Torbush, who announced his retirement Dec. 8. Torbush had been ETSU’s coach since 2015, when the school relaunched the football program it had shut down for financial reasons in 2003.
Sanders was Florida State’s quarterbacks coach in 2013 when the Seminoles won the national title and quarterback Jameis Winston received the Heisman Trophy. Sanders remained at Florida State through this season and most recently worked as co-offensive coordinator.
He spent 22 seasons at Tennessee (1984-2005) as a player and assistant coach. Sanders was offensive coordinator at Tennessee and Kentucky before coming to Florida State.
