• Most wins by a Memphis coach over ranked opponents (3) • Only second head coach with 10 wins in regular season in program Mike Norvell came to Memphis with an ability to develop dynamic offenses, and his two seasons with the Tigers did not disappoint. Year one of the Norvell-era offense was the second mostprolific in program history, behind only 2015, rolling up the second-most total yards (6,028) and scoring the secondmost points (505) for a season in school history. Year two (2017) shattered those marks, with 6,917 total yards, and 592 points scored. The Memphis offense also scored the most touchdowns (74) for a campaign in program history, including a school season-record 39 touchdown passes. The Tigers’ 4,355 passing yards were the first 4,000-plus passing season in school history and the 307 completions was the third-most for a season in school history. Under Norvell’s direction, Riley Ferguson and Anthony Miller blossomed at quarterback and receiver, respectively. Ferguson finished his career at Memphis with 7,955 passing yards, ranking third in program history despite only being on the roster for two seasons. Ferguson’s 70 passing touchdowns ranks second only to four-year starter Danny Wimprine in the Memphis record book. Miller became just the third Tiger and the first skill position player in school history to earn NCAA Consensus All-American honors after finishing his career with 3,590 receiving yards and 238 catches. The 238 catches set a new Memphis career mark and his 3,590 yards in three seasons made Miller the first Tiger in school history to have over 3,000 career receiving yards. Miller’s 37 receiving touchdowns is 15 more than the previous career mark at Memphis and helped him earn the Touchdown Club of Columbus’ Paul Warfield honor. While the offense flourished in Norvell’s first two seasons, the Tigers defense and special teams were not to be overshadowed. After turning opponents over 29 times in 2016, the Tigers forced 31 turnovers in 2017, ranking third in the nation. Memphis’ 15 fumble recoveries ranked tied for fourth in the country. Senior linebacker Genard Avery repeated back-to-back first team all-conference honors, and finished his career among the top three in program history in career sacks

2018 MEMPHIS FOOTBALL ASSISTANT COACHES

history (Allyn McKeen in 1938) • First rookie head coach to have a win over a ranked opponent since 1975 (48-44 win over No. 18/21 Houston) • Coached the school’s first nonspecialist consensus NCAA All-American in WR Anthony Miller

• Led Tigers to school-record ninestraight weeks in Associated Press Top 25 Poll in 2017 • Coached two of the top three offenses (points scored and total offense) in school history

(2nd, 21.5) and tackles for loss (3rd, 41.5). Freshman defensive back T.J. Carter also made a name for himself in the Tiger secondary, earning USA Today Freshman All-America honors after finishing fifth on the team with 69 tackles and leading the squad with five interceptions.

and moved on to the Super Bowl-winning Philadelphia Eagles roster in his rookie year, Norvell and his staff tapped freshman Riley Patterson to handle kicking duties and the Tigers still ranked among the country’s best, finishing 13th in kickoff return defense (17.75 ypr).

After ranking 11th in turnover margin in Norvell’s first year at Memphis, the Tigers ranked third (1.15) in 2017, thanks in part to an offense that turned the ball over just six times in 13 games.

Off the field, Norvell’s Tigers are also excelling in the classroom. The team just posted its highest GPA in program history in the fall of 2017 and in his two seasons at the helm of the Tigers, 34 football players have earned their respective bachelor’s degrees, including Riley Ferguson, Anthony Miller and Genard Avery, three players who participated in the 2018 NFL Combine.

The focus Norvell and his staff placed on the game’s third phase, special teams, has provided major dividends in his time at Memphis. It also brought to an end what was believed to be the longest kick return for a touchdown drought in FBS history. The span of time was nearly 21 seasons, but the 2016 Tigers special teams laid that record to rest and then some. In the Oct. 6 win over Temple, freshman Tony Pollard took an Owls’ kickoff and raced 95 yards for a touchdown, the first by a Memphis player since November of 1996. Not to stop there, Norvell’s special teams ran back two more kickoffs for scores and set the program’s season record for kick returns for touchdowns with three. Pollard had a second kick-return score (100 yards vs. Navy), and Darrell Henderson added another (99 yards vs. SMU). The three kick returns for touchdowns were tied for the FBS lead in 2016. Pollard continued his special teams prowess in 2017, returning four kickoffs for touchdowns and earning first team Walter Camp and FWAA All-American honors after leading the country in kickoff return yards per game (42.4) and kickoff return touchdowns (four). Pollard also grabbed his second consecutive American Athletic Conference Special Teams Player of the Year honor in 2017. In 2016, Memphis had the second-best kick return defense in the country, allowing opponents a mere 16.04 yards per return and none returned for touchdowns. A major reason for the Tigers’ success on kick return defense was Lou Groza semifinalist Jake Elliott’s 64 touchbacks out of 92 kickoffs (69.6 percent). Elliott’s 64 touchbacks led The American and was third nationally. After Elliott graduated

Prior to Memphis Norvell’s rise to the FBS head coaching ranks was as fast as he wants the pace of his offense to be: hyper speed. He moved into the coaching profession after he completed his playing career at Central Arkansas in 2004. After graduation in 2005, Norvell joined his alma mater’s staff and began blazing his path. Following a season as a Bears’ graduate assistant coach in 2006, Norvell moved to Tulsa, Okla., where he coached wide receivers in 2007 and began a coaching partnership with the Golden Hurricane head coach Todd Graham that lasted until he came to Memphis in December of 2015. He served on Graham’s staffs at Tulsa (2007-10), Pittsburgh (2011) and Arizona State (2012-15). College/Personal Norvell was an accomplished student-athlete at Central Arkansas. A four-year starter at receiver, he finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in receptions (213) and ranked third in receiving yards (2,611). Norvell earned All-Gulf South honors and was the conference’s 2001 Freshman of the Year. He also was a two-time Gulf South All-Academic first team honoree. Norvell earned both his bachelor’s (education in social studies, 2005) and master’s (training systems, 2007) degrees from Central Arkansas. Norvell is married to the former Maria Chiolino of Fort Smith, Arkansas. They have one daughter, Mila.
