    Shippensburg announces hiring of new offensive coordinator, Jesse Correll (from Shepherd).



    SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. – Jesse Correll was hired Monday as a full-time assistant coach for the Shippensburg University football team. Correll will serve as the offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and wide receivers coach for the Red Raiders.

    Correll replaces the staff position of J.C. Morgan, who resigned in April to become the head coach at Millersville University.

    For the last two seasons, Correll worked at his alma mater, Shepherd University, as the passing game coordinator, quarterbacks coach and wide receivers coach. He had been promoted to the role of Shepherd's offensive coordinator in January. Shepherd is annually one of the top teams in Super Region 1; the Rams have made three consecutive NCAA playoff appearances – winning back-to-back regional championships in 2015 and 2016.

    Correll was an instrumental contributor to a coaching staff that instructed the Rams to 1,051 points over the last two seasons. As Shepherd's quarterbacks coach, Correll mentored Harlon Hill Trophy finalists in consecutive seasons: Connor Jessop (2017) and Jeff Ziemba (2016). As receivers coach, Correll instructed All-American Billy Brown and Ryan Feiss. As passing game coordinator, Correll worked with All-American tight end DJ Cornish.

    "We are very excited about Jesse Correll joining the Red Raider family," head coach Mark 'Mac' Maciejewski said. "He has been very successful at the collegiate level for more than a decade, and he is passionate about coaching young men to be the best that they can be."

    Last season, Shepherd's offense ranked second in the nation in points per game (48.5) and total offense per game (527.4) while quarterback Jessop, the Mountain East Conference (MEC) Offensive Player of the Year, finished fourth in the balloting for the Harlon Hill Trophy. During Correll's most recent stint at his alma mater, the Ram offense broke 31 school records in two years.

    Prior to Shepherd, Correll spent a season coaching in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC), serving as Clarion's offensive coordinator in 2015. The Golden Eagles broke eight school records on offense during a season in which Clarion got off to its first 7-0 start in 32 years. Correll worked with CU quarterback Connor Simmons, who ranked fourth nationally in passing yards (3,582) and passing touchdowns (34).

    From 2011-14, Correll spent four seasons as the offensive coordinator at Stevenson, a Division III university located in Owings Mills, Maryland. In his four seasons with the Mustangs, Correll coached 10 All-Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) selections on offense. The 2014 squad went 8-3 and set a school record by scoring 280 points (25.5 points per game) – capping the season with a 29-7 victory over Bethany in the ECAC Southeast Bowl.

    "He has a tremendous track record and some familiarity with our conference," Maciejewski said. "Players respond to Coach Correll. We are excited to welcome him and his family into our Red Raider family."

    Correll's collegiate coaching career began at his alma mater in 2007, where he began a three-year stint as Shepherd's wide receivers coach. The Rams went 10-2 in his debut season on the staff under legendary coach Monte Cater, winning the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) Championship and qualifying for the NCAA Division II Football Championships.

    Before getting his start as a college coach, Correll spent 2005 and 2006 working at Park View High School in Sterling, Virginia – serving as the offensive coordinator in his second and final season. The Patriots averaged 31.1 points and 362.5 yards per game en route to earning the No. 2 seed in the Virginia 2A state playoffs.

    As a collegian, Correll was a two-time All-WVIAC Second Team selection at wide receiver. He still ranks in Shepherd's all-time Top 10 for career receptions (98), career receiving yards (1,760) and career touchdown receptions (13). In his senior season (2004), Correll totaled 702 receiving yards in helping the Rams win the 2004 WVIAC Championship.

    Correll graduated from Shepherd in 2005 with a degree in recreation and leisure studies. He later earned his master's degree from Shepherd in 2009, majoring in student development and administration.

    A native of Port Republic, Maryland, Correll is a 1999 graduate of Calvert High School. With the Cavaliers, Correll was a four-year starter at running back and defensive back and a first team All-Southern Maryland Athletic Conference (SMAC) honoree. He set a single-game school record with 236 rushing yards against La Plata in 1998.

    Correll and his wife, McKenzie, have two daughters, Amelia Dean and Leila Lee.

    Does anyone have any idea how often PSAC FB teams raid one another for the big three coaches, HC, OC and DC.? Because the RAMS are technically not in the league yet, rules, written or traditional, don't apply. But it seems a rude way to welcome SHEPHERD to the league. Is it common, rare, unheard of ?? Just asking.

    Raiding players would be a major problem. Coaches are open season.

    The life of assistants is really kind of a transient lifestyle. In most cases if you want to keep moving up .... you have to keep moving.

    If the salary numbers above were correct .... not sure how Shepherd expects to keep any coaches whom have any experience level.

    I'm almost sure he's renting and since he is known to hop around I'm sure Coach Mac has a list of potential candidates if he did jump ship before the season or right after the season.

    I don't get the issue with this guy hopping around? That's the norm in the assistant coaching world.

    Why in the world would he want to stay at a job making $35,000 a year when he's obviously in demand to go elsewhere and make much more? Goodness. He's not a priest assigned to a church. The goal is to get paid. Do well at Ship for a year and on to the next one. Not a lifestyle for everybody but that's the profession they chose. IUP has a new assistant basketball coach yearly. The majority of D2 assistant coaches have one goal ... get out of D2 as fast as possible. There's only a few programs in the entire D2 world that pay assistants 'somewhat' well.

    He's probably commuting, still plenty of time before August rolls around to make another move. Who knows maybe Shep will counter offer and he'll be back before fall camps open

    You want stability in your program which allows you to build success. When one of your top 3 is a one and done, that isn't conducive to building a stable program. There are offensive players on the team he left that will now be playing under their 3rd OC...there are players in this years recruiting class that he recruited that are now left hanging...there are players that came in last season because of him that are scratching their heads on weather to stay or maybe they should transfer.

    Not saying he shouldn't do what is best for himself but I would imagine he is developing a reputation that COULD affect him in the future. Once you hit the OC level, HC's that are going to consider hiring you are probably going to want a little more than a one year commitment from you. If your history says you bolt the first chance you get, they may look elsewhere.

    Nobody has yet. How long do you really think you'll keep somebody paying them nothing?

    Coaches know the business. It's the way it is.

    3rd OC...?...at Shepherd? Coach Ernie McCook has been the OC at Shepherd since 1999. Coach McCook has called the plays since 1999-2017. Also, players should never choose a school because of the coach. Academics, location, players/teammates should trump the coaches. Coaches get fired every year sir. I doubt the players will be leaving Shepherd over one coach. Shepherd has lost plenty of coaches over the years. It’s bigger than a coach when you have a real program filled with tradition. You all underestimate Coach McCook (New HC) who has been there 19 years...and Coach Kline (DC) who has been there since 1997 (player/coach who has held every title besides HC). Reputation...? Go look at the coaching bios of the NFL and D1 coaches...lol. Some move every year early.

    Jesse was the OC for 2 months essentially. He never was the OC during an actual game. The voice Shepherd has heard since 1998/1999 is McCooks and since he's the HC, he'll probably still be the voice they hear.

    If Jesse gets offered another spot next year at Towson or another step up with a monetary raise he should take that job too and not give a hoot about what we message board idiots think about it. Get your money!

    Looks like Ship has added another coach to its staff. KiJuan Ware is now the RB/Recruiting Coordinator leaving GSC member Shorter University as their OC/QB/Recruiting Coordinator for what is probably a small pay raise in addition to less responsibilities. Shorter seems to be the GSC version of our beloved Cheyney, the whipping boy for the conference so let's see how well he recruits for Ship and how he incorporates his schemes and coaching into the RB's.

    I believe Chase Yocum will be the starter and Brycen Mussina will be the change of pace QB.

    I think it's going to be a long season for the Red Raiders. The defense will keep them in some games, but if you don't have a QB to sling it, look out. What is Archangelo's status?

    That's the big question I have -- Archangelo. I think they need somebody who can get the ball into the hands of that stable of receivers, especially Eubanks. And it's been pretty well-established that Yocum is primarily a running QB. I'm guessing Mussina has a pretty big upside (and also happens to punt the ball into orbit), but Archangelo seems to be the forgotten man. He really whipped the ball around at times two years ago when Zapoticky was hurt.
