Johnson hires director of football operations from South Carolina

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Newly named University of Southern Mississippi head football coach Ellis Johnson will be bringing at least one of his South Carolina co-workers with him to Hattiesburg. One report says Clyde Wrenn, director of football operations at the University of South Carolina, will retain the same position with Johnson and the Golden Eagles.

Another source tells Seven on Your Side Sports that Johnson is currently speaking with a handful of assistant coaching candidates and could have a full staff named before the new year.
