HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Marshall offensive coordinator and tight ends coach Bill Legg resigned Thursday, ending an eight-year tenure.

“After much deliberation, I feel that it is time to step down,” said Legg in a statement released by the school. “It has been a difficult decision because of many meaningful relationships. I want to thank all of those who have been supportive during my tenure and wish all the best to Marshall University, its student-athletes, my colleagues and coach Doc Holliday.”

Marshall’s offense ranked ninth in Conference USA at 379.8 yards per game and was seventh in scoring at 26.7 points.

Legg was brought in as the offensive coordinator when Holliday took over as head coach eight seasons ago. Legg has previously served as the Herd’s tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator in 2001 and 2002.

“Billy and I have known each other for a long time,” said Holliday. “I thank him for his contributions to our program and wish him and Kelly nothing but the best.”
