Yielding, a former Citadel linebacker and successful Georgia high school coach, will assist director of football operations Mack Butler with his tasks and be the main contact for staff and players regarding academics and player's living arrangements.
Monday was the first day at Oklahoma State for Terrell Smith, a former All-ACC defensive back at Duke who is replacing Yielding as the coordinator of football operations. That job deals more with football issues not involving current players. Smith, who will also assist director of recruiting Johnny Barr, was assistant director of football relations at Duke.
Smith, a native of Wingate, N.C., and 2004 graduate of Duke University, co-captained the Blue Devils during his senior season in the fall of 2003 and earned co-team MVP and second team All-ACC honors after recording 140 tackles. He played and later worked on the Duke staff under current Oklahoma State co-defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer.
In 40 career games, Smith racked up 321 tackles and three interceptions.
Following his graduation from Duke, Smith worked one year on the coaching staff at Lenoir-Rhyne College before returning to his alma mater. He served as a graduate assistant coach in 2005 and then spent two seasons in the player development office.
Now Mr. and Mrs. Grant Garner join Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Weeden as the married couples among the players in the Oklahoma State football family.
Blackmon was one of the several star players chosen by ESPN to be a part of the promotional campaign. Oddly enough, there is a snag regarding NCAA rules that would allow Blackmon to attend The ESPYs if his two teammates happen to make it in. OSU Athletic Media Relations and Compliance were checking into the rules and whether Blackmon could attent the event if assistant director of athletic media relations Gavin Lang had to stay out in Los Angeles for The ESPYs.
