The Mississippi State Bulldogs’ coaching staff may have taken a bit of a hit over the weekend. Recruiting assistant Rod Gibson was arrested for DUI late Saturday night and released on bond.
The Clarion-Ledger reported that the incident took place in Starkville around 1:30 a.m. Saturday night. No further details were released by the Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department.
Gibson was formerly the running backs coach at Copiah-Lincoln Community College and was hired by the Bulldogs in February. He played running back for the Bulldogs in 1998 and 1999.
The Bulldogs had the 11th-best recruiting class for the 2016 season.
Rod Gibson helped them land five-star linebacker Jeffery Simmons ahead of national signing day.
