Over the weekend, legendary running back Eddie George was named the head coach of Tennessee State’s football program. He still has a long way to go before he fills out his coaching staff, but he has some marquee targets on his radar.
It’s already been reported that Jeff Fisher and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will join George’s staff at Tennessee State. The latter actually played for the Tigers, so it’s a nice reunion for the two sides.
As if the additions of Fisher and Rodgers-Cromartie weren’t big enough, it’s being reported that George also has his sights set on a Pro Football Hall of Famer.
Football Scoop is reporting that George has zeroed in on Rod Woodson to become the program’s secondary coach. That would be a huge addition to Tennessee State’s coaching staff.

Woodson, a former first-round pick and Super Bowl champion, is considered one of the best defensive backs in NFL history. He began his career as a cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but then moved over to safety when he joined the Baltimore Ravens.
Once his playing career was over, Woodson remained in the NFL as a coaching assistant for the Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders.
If the Tigers eventually land Woodson, that would really help them on the recruiting front. There must be a handful of defensive backs that want to learn from one of the greatest to ever play the position.
