From the Mother Ship, my interview with new football assistant coach Corey Batoon.
Getting back to an on-field position was a goal for Batoon. It’s where he’s spent most of an almost 20-year football coaching career.
Three years with one spot is a long time to wait in an administrative role for that opportunity. Batoon says he waited because he liked the chemistry of this Ole Miss staff and because he felt like he had a good job to wait in.
Getting back on-field was kind of like riding a bike. As he says, it wasn’t like he was locked in a cage for three years and didn’t see football.
