The running backs coach for the Miami Hurricanes, Terry Richardson, plans on following Jedd Fisch to take the same position with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to a report from Pete Roussel of Coaching Search.

Richardson had a short four-year career in the NFL, bouncing between the Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers before entering the coaching ranks in 1998 as the offensive coordinator and running backs coach at his former high school, Northeast.

One year later he was hired as the running backs coach for the Connecticut Huskies where he coached many players, including Colts RB Donald Brown and Jaguars RB Jordan Todman during his 12 seasons with the team. He was hired by the Hurricanes in 2011 and helped to groom Lamar Miller while working under Fisch's offense and doubling as the Florida recruiting coordinator.

Richardson's coaching job with the Jaguars will be his first in the NFL
