Southern Miss Assistant Head Football Coach Steve Buckley Resigns


Steve Buckley has decided to pursue other business opportunities. He served as the Golden Eagles offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the 2012 season.

He said,"I had a chance to go back into private business and it was too good of an opportunity to pass up at this time. I appreciate the opportunity that the University and coach Monken have given me and I wish them nothing but success."

Buckley was an offensive graduate assistant from 1987-88 and then running backs coach from 1989-90 at Southern Miss.  He returned to Hattiesburg and was the Golden Eagles running backs coach from 1997-99.

Coach Todd Monken said,"While he was here with us, Steve did a tremendous job with our program. He was essential in our recruiting efforts when I first got the job and continued to do that for the last year. He will certainly be missed and we wish him nothing but the best."

Southern Miss will begin a national search to find a replacement for Buckley immediately.
