Western Kentucky offensive assistant Steve Spurrier Jr. has left the Hilltoppers for an assistant coaching job at Washington State, the Daily News learned Wednesday.

Spurrier will coach outside receivers with the Cougars, multiple national outlets later reported.

Spurrier worked during the 2017 season as WKU’s assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach under Mike Sanford. He coached Topper quarterback Mike White, who completed 65.7 percent of his passes last season for 321.3 yards per game with 26 touchdowns against eight interceptions.

Spurrier came to WKU after working in 2016 at Oklahoma as the Sooners’ offensive and recruiting specialist.

Spurrier worked from 2005-15 at South Carolina in various offensive roles under his father, Steve Spurrier. He worked from 1994-2004 in assistant coaching positions at Florida, Oklahoma, Arizona and with the NFL’s Washington Redskins.
