James Madison hired Richmond DC Bob Trott to serve in the same capacity.

The 61-year-old Trott had been Richmond's defensive coordinator since 2010. He indicated that he's known new James Madison HC Mike Hudson for several years, which played into his decision. At the same time, he said, "this is the hardest move I’ve ever made. Richmond is special place for me. Richmond’s players are special to me. It’s a good program. It’s on the right track." Adding to the intrigue, Richmond and James Madison are rivals. This should add some spice to their future showdowns.

James Madison S Dean Marlowe was a surprising addition to the NFL combine, wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"A four-year starter at James Madison, Marlowe has experience playing near the line of scrimmage and in the deep half of the field and with a solid combine, could earn himself draftable grades from teams," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-2, 203-pounder runs a 4.55 second 40-yard dash. CBS ranks Marlowe as the 11th-best safety in the class and a Round 7 or UDFA prospect.

James Madison redshirt senior S Dean Marlowe is a "good all-around safety and could come off the board in the fifth or early sixth round," wrote ESPN's Mel Kiper.

Marlowe accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game late last month. "He offers a ton of versatility," wrote Kiper. "[Last] Saturday in an FCS playoffs loss to Liberty he was playing in the box and making plays in the run game. But he'll also play well back in space, closing on the balls in the passing game and making plays. He's also a return man and the ball skills are really evident there." The 6-foot-2, 203-pounder runs a 4.55 second 40-yard dash. CBS ranks Marlowe as the 11th-best safety in the class and a Round 7 or UDFA prospect.

Vad Lee - QB - Dukes

Former Georgia Tech QB Vad Lee transferred to James Madison.

Since Lee is moving to the FCS level, he won't be required to sit out a season; he'll be a redshirt junior in 2014. Despite playing in all 13 games this season and leading GT in passing, Lee decided to move on after the season, citing displeasure with Paul Johnson's triple-option offense. "I am so grateful for the 3 years at Tech," Lee tweeted on Monday. "But I am excited for another great opportunity to be apart of the James Madison University family!"

Vad Lee - QB - Dukes

Georgia tech redshirt sophomore QB Vad Lee announced he will transfer to a different program.

"The triple option was never really my thing," Lee said. If that is the case, Lee's choice in school was doomed form the start. Lee is not much of a passer either, completing 45.6 percent of his attempts for 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

Vad Lee - QB - Dukes

Georgia Tech will continue to use redshirt sophomore Vad Lee as the starting QB.

Lee has thrown four interceptions and no touchdowns on a 33 percent completion streak in the last three games. Obviously Georgia Tech focuses on running the ball in their triple option attack, but fans could keep calling for Justin Thomas.

Vad Lee - QB - Dukes

After hiring QB coach Bryan Cook from Cal Poly, the Georgia tech triple option offense is expected to go through some changes.

"He has done some interesting things at Cal Poly using the shotgun element as well so I feel like he is a good fit for us," head coach Paul Johnson said. Running back recruit Robert Martin also noted "They’re going to be putting in a lot of shotgun, one-back (sets)."
