Temple completes football staff with hiring of WR coach Keith Gaither

Temple completed its nine-man full-time assistant football coaching staff with the hiring on Monday of Keith Gaither as wide receivers coach.

Gaither replaced Frisman Jackson who was originally retained by new coach Geoff Collins, but recently left after two seasons to become the wide receivers coach of the Tennessee Titans.

A 1997 graduate of Elon, Gaither has been coaching ever since. He spent the previous two seasons as the wide receivers coach at Army.

He began his coaching career at Greensboro College in 1997. After that he had stints at Tusculum College (1998-99), Thomasville City Schools (2000-04), Winston-Salem State (2005-08), Elon (2009-10), Ball State (2010-14) and Army (2015-16).

Temple also hired Kyle Lane as video coordinator.
