Holman Wiggins, the running backs coach at Tulsa, has been recommended to the Tennessee Board of Regents for approval of his hiring at the University of Memphis, multiple sources told TigerAuthority.com Tuesday.
He will serve in the same capacity for the Tigers.
The Los Angeles native led the Golden Hurricane to 204.6 yards rushing per game, a mark that was good for 24th in the nation.
Fuente and Wiggins have obvious connections for two reasons: They both coached together at Illinois State, and Fuente, who hails from Tulsa, has strong connections with the program.
Rohrk Cutchlow, the strength coach with Tulsa, could also be another addition on Fuente's staff in the near future.
