Appalachian State University football coach Jerry Moore is in the market for a new wide receivers coach.
Lance Taylor, who coached wide receivers last fall, has taken a position as offensive assistant with the New York Jets of the National Football League. Under his guidance, the receiving corps produced a school record with 264 receptions for 3,621 yards last season.
Defensive end Tony Robertson’s playing career is over. The red-shirt senior suffered a shoulder injury while lifting weights in January.
Robertson was named an honorable mention All-America by The Sports Network during his sophomore year in 2007. He had 62 tackles, 5.5 quarterback sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss. For his career, Robertson played in 44 games, had 19 starts, made 97 tackles, 11 quarterback sacks, 23 tackles for loss, eight quarterback hurries, an interception and a forced fumble.
Robertson, a native of Laurinburg, NC, will be a student assistant coach this season.
ASU will open the football season at Chattanooga on Saturday, September 4.
