Football Scoop reports that former Mississippi State QB coach Brett Elliott will coach quarterbacks at Texas State.

It's a homecoming of sorts for Elliott, who spent 2016 as the co-offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for the Bobcats before joining Dan Mullen at Mississippi State. He's also coached quarterbacks for James Madison, and prior to that was an offensive analyst for the Bulldogs.

Football Scoop is reporting that Texas State co-offensive coordinator and QB coach Parker Fleming will rejoin the Ohio State staff.

It's not yet clear what role Fleming will have with the Buckeyes. He was with the Buckeyes until 2014, when he left to become the wide receivers coach and special-teams coordinator for James Madison. Two years later, he joined the Bobcats as their QB coach and co-offensive coordinator.

Football Scoop reports that Texas State will hire Oklahoma defensive specialist Chris Woods to serve as defensive coordinator.

The Bobcats were in need of a new defensive coordinator after Randall McCray flew the coop for a job on staff with the Arizona Cardinals. Enter Woods, who has been in Stillwater since 2015. He does have some prior experience as a defensive coordinator, working in that capacity at Holmes Community College in Mississippi as well as at Columbia University. He'll have his work cut out for him with Texas State, as the team ranked 103rd in the FBS in total defense last season, surrendering almost 439 yards per game for the campaign.

Texas State redshirt senior QB Damian Williams completed 33-of-55 passes for 316 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 33-30 loss to Georgia State.

In a fun little back-and-forth contest, Williams and company were unable to hold the 30-26 lead which they took midway through the fourth quarter. No comeback was to be in the cards after Georgia State scored the go-ahead touchdown with 6:07 remaining in the contest. While the redshirt senior has played mostly forgettable ball this season, Williams has been coming on of late, throwing for at least 265 yards and two touchdowns in each of his last three games. He'll try for more of the same against Arkansas State next weekend.

Texas State redshirt senior QB Damian Williams completed 31 of his 47 pass attempts for 321 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Saturday's conference loss against New Mexico State.

Williams has had a shaky season, but he has made progress. The 321 yards were a season best, and he has two touchdowns in each of the past two outings after failing to hit the mark in each of his first seven contests. He'll look to keep trending upward next week against Georgia State.

Texas State senior TE Gabe Schrade caught four passes for 78 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 27-7 win over Coastal Carolina.

Schrade (6'4/227) picked up most of his yardage on a 54-yard touchdown catch with less than four minutes gone off the clock in the first quarter. The preseason John Mackey Award watch-lister was an intriguing sleeper tight end for big numbers entering the season, but had made just eight catches for 131 yards prior to his nice performance on Saturday.

Texas State senior WR Elijah King caught six passes for 112 yards in Saturday's 20-13 loss to Appalachian State.

King (6'2/190) led the Bobcats in both catches and yardage, but Texas State simply couldn't find much of an offensive attack outside of the senior wideout. This past season, he posted a 28-453-2 receiving line. He had four catches for 85 yards to his fair name entering action on Saturday.

Suspended redshirt senior QB Damian Williams returned to practice on Saturday.

Williams was suspended due to what HC Everett Withers termed "academic and personal reasons" at the beginning of August. Jaylen Gipson, Willie Jones III, Kishawn Kelley and Jaylin Nelson are currently battling it out for starting rights, but if Mississippi State transfer Williams is good to go, he would be the team's most promising option.

Texas State sophomore RB Tyler Tutt (knee) will likely miss the entire season.

Tutt is still recovering from a knee injury. He’s expected to join the team once classes begin. We probably won't see him on the field until 2018.

Texas State HC Everett Withers suspended redshirt junior T.V. Williams for "academic and personal reasons."

"There’s no telling when they’ll get back or if they’ll get back," Withers said in announcing the suspension of Williams and redshirt senior QB Damian Williams. T.V. Williams played two seasons at Kentucky before transferring over. He sat out last year to satisfy NCAA bylaws.

Athlon's Mike Bainbridge speculates that Texas State redshirt freshman RB Robert Brown will take over as starter now that Stedman Mayberry has left the team.

A two-star recruit who began his TSU career as a receiver, Brown sat out last season as a redshirt. He returns as perhaps TSU's leading candidate to lead the squad in carries this fall. With starting QB Damian Williams suspended, the Bobcats may lean heavily on the running game early on. Bainbridge believes junior RB Anthony Taylor will function as Brown's backup.

Texas State HC Everett Withers confirmed that junior RB Stedman Mayberry is off the team.

The Bobcats' leading returning rusher curiously plummeted down the depth chart to the third-team during spring camp. Withers mentioned that the backfield hierarchy was likely Mayberry's reason for leaving. Mayberry had 593 yards and five touchdowns on the ground while adding another 321 yards receiving on 41 receptions last year.

Texas State HC Everett Withers suspended redshirt senior QB Damian Williams for "academic and personal reasons."

Withers punished senior wideout T.V. Williams for the same reason. "There’s no telling when they’ll get back or if they’ll get back," Withers said. Bobcat fans should be hitting every available panic button right now. Texas State's offense was an abomination last year, and Damian Williams' arrival from Mississippi State was one of the few sources of hope through which improvement could be dreamed on. Until he returns, the Bobcats have a four-man competition going under center between the uninspiring quartet of Jaylen Gipson, Willie Jones III, Kishawn Kelley and Jaylin Nelson. If Williams is dismissed, this offense is in deep, deep trouble.

Texas State junior RB Stedman Mayberry is the team's leading returning rusher.

Mayberry had 593 yards and five touchdowns on the ground while adding another 321 yards receiving on 41 receptions last year. The Bobcats don't have much outside, so Mayberry may be one of QB Damian Williams’ top targets this fall, in addition to his work as the starting running back.

Texas State senior TE Gabe Schrade was named to the 2017 John Mackey Award Watch List.

After starting out his career working mostly as a special teams contributor, Schrade (6'4/227) finally earned some receiving work as a junior last season. For the campaign, he caught 25 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns while working to an 11.4 yards-per-reception clip. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks him as the No. 34 fantasy tight end in college football.
