Jon Heacock joins Purdue staff

Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Former Youngstown State head football coach Jon Heacock is moving again.

Heacock confirms to 21 Sports that he has already joined the Purdue staff.

Heacock was the Kent State defensive coordinator the past two seasons and is joining Darrell Hazell at Purdue as their secondary coach.

Hecock said he started working for Purdue last Friday and is on the road recruiting.

Heacock is no stranger to the Big Ten, he was Indiana's defensive coordinator from 1997 through 1999, and prior to that was a grad assistant at Michigan in 1988.

Heacock may not be the only local connection on the Purdue staff.  Valley native Matt Cavanaugh is in the mix to become the Boilermakers offensive coordinator.
